This book presents the amazing new Getty Center, designed by world-renowned architect Richard Meier, and built in Los Angeles with actual blocks of Travertine from the riverbed of the Tiber in Italy. With six separate sections devoted to the Lower Tram Station and Arrival Plaza, the Harold M. Williams Auditorium, the North and East Buildings, the J. Paul Getty Museum itself, the Research Institute for the History of Art and the Humanities, and the Restaurant-Cafa, respectively, this book bears witness to Meier's Herculean feat*the realization and reinvention of the ideal city of the Renaissance for the 21st century. Documented in full color by photographer Antonia Mulas*whose previous works have concentrated on Graeco-Roman civilization on the one hand and contemporary megalopolises on the other*Richard Meier: The Getty Center is a monument not only to the architect and the Center itself, but to the highest possibilities of human architectural achievement as well.
