High Museum of Art
The High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia, asked architect Richard Meier to create a memorable and unique building. The result is characteristic of Meier’s architectural style.
 
The museum is constructed of concrete with steel columns and frame, and is faced with Meier’s trademark – white, porcelain-enameled, steel panels. The architect said, “...for me, white is the most wonderful color because within it you can see all the colors of the rainbow.” The large, curved, four-story facade has a grid of huge windows that allow light to pour in.
 
Meier is known for creating structures that make bold statements. He was born in 1934 in New Jersey. After earning a degree in architecture from Cornell University in 1957, he worked with several architects. Meier started his own practice in 1963 by designing a home for his parents. Other commissions followed.
 
In 1984, the year after the new High Museum opened, Richard Meier became the youngest architect ever to receive his profession’s highly esteemed Pritzker Architecture Prize.
 
The High Museum is the leading art museum in the Southeastern United States. This museum welcomes about 500,000 visitors each year.
