Description

 

Richard Meier and his square patterned white flat buildings represent a valuable example of the so called Postmodernism. Moreover Meier's architecture is thought to be the direct descendant of International Style masters, such as Le Corbusier and Neutra.

The Douglas House design by one of our favorite architects, Richard Meier is based on the shores of Lake Michigan. The house is one of several spectacular residences Richard Meier completed early in his career and that helped to solidify his reputation. The whiteness and pure geometry of the house stand in sharp contrast to the pine trees that surround it. The openness of the plan and the glass elevations ensure dramatic lake and shoreline views throughout. info source: cubeme.com

So steep is the slope to the water that the house appears to have been dropped into the site, a machine-crafted object that has landed in a natural world. The dramatic dialogue between the whiteness of the house and the primary blues and greens of the water, trees, and sky allows the house not only to assert its own presence but to enhance, by contrast, the beauty of its natural environment as well."

— Richard Meier. Richard Meier, Architect. New York: Oxford University Press, 1976. p87. info source: www.greatbuildings.com
