The recently designed W Retreat Kanai in Mexico's Riviera Maya by Richard Meier & Partners has flagged up Meier's presence in the Latin American country. Now a retrospective of the American architect's work - held in Mexico's Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey (MARCO) - follows hot on its heels, and is set to put the project in context within his vastly influential body of work.
Offering an in-depth view of Meier's design philosophy, the exhibition follows his most emblematic projects to-date. Including work of almost any type - from masterplans to furniture design - the display features a selection of models, original sketches, renderings, photographs and products, and spans everything from iconic images of the architect's work - such as the Jubilee Church in Rome and the Neugebauer Residence in Florida - to unbuilt and rarely seen competition proposals and under construction projects.
