A graduate of Cornell University, Richard Meier worked with a number of notable architects, like SOM and Marcel Breuer (who's name you might recognize from our 25 Furniture Designers You Need to Know). In 1963 Meier established his own practice. Among his most well known projects are High Museum in Atlanta, Frankfurt Museum of Decorative Art in Germany and the Bronx Development Center in NYC. He has won the Pritzker Prize, the American Institute of Architects Gold Medal and the Royal Gold Medal from the Royal Institute of British Architects.
