This monograph presents Meier's most important buildings of recent years, and illustrates them with key details. Projects covered include: Canal Plus, Paris; Royal Dutch Paper Mill, Hilversum; Hypolux bank, Luxembourg; Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art; The Hague City Hall and Central Library; the Museum of Television and Radio, Los Angeles; Euregio Office Building, Basel; Rachofsky Residence, Dallas; and the Court House, Long Island. All the buildings and projects are presented from the same aspects: situation, programme, circulation, structure, texture, layers. This allows an effective comparison of the various buildings, and brings out their aesthetic individuality and the guiding principles behind their construction. Thus, through the example of key details, this monograph shows that the latest works of Meier are also committed to the idea of the classic work of art, in that they combine the simple with the noble in a contemporary way and into a harmonious whole.
