So why doesn’t Richard Meier live in one of the glass-walled apartment houses he’s built in the West Village? Too much stuff. I live in a conventional building, he confessed at a launch party for Richard Meier & Partners: Complete Works 19632008. I have too many books to move. The architect owns a 5,000-square-foot apartment in a white-glove Upper East Side prewar, and his Long Island place is a century-old farmhouse. But his daughter lives in his Charles Street fishbowl tower, and he gets to experience his architecture on visits. I love going to visit herI’m happy there, Meier said. But, I mean, I just couldn’t deal with moving. I know where every book is. You move, you lose your place.
No Fishbowl for Richard Meier
Too much stuff.
