"Technology is part of civilization and being anti-technology would be like declaring war on architecture and civilization itself." It was rooted in the needs of the City of London ans responded to an influx of people returning from the suburbs to enjoy a new quality of urban life The concept of Nomos is based on the relationship between the users and the space they occupy. It answered specific requirements for library equipment where no adequate solutions were found to exist. Richard Meier (born October 12, 1934) who is an American architect, was born in Newark, New Jersey. In 1957, he earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Cornell University.
In 1959, he worked for Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, and then for Marcel Breuer for three years.
In 1963, he started his own practice in New York.
In 1972, he identified as one of The New York Five, his commission of the Getty Center in Los Angeles, California catapulted his popularity into the mainstream.
In 1984, he was awarded the Pritzker Prize.
In 2008, he won the gold medal in architecture from the Academy of Arts and Letters and his work Jesolo Lido Village was awarded the Dedalo Minosse International Prize for commissioning a building. Meier is a Senior Fellow of the Design Futures Council.
In 1997, he was awarded the AIA Gold Medal.
Before the end of terms in 2013, he plans to build a wide pedestrian area along the river and run the road underneath it. His work also reflects the influences of other designers such as Mies Van der Rohe, Frank Lloyd Wright and Luis Barragán. White has been used in many architectural landmark buildings throughout history, including cathedrals and the white-washed villages of the Mediterranean region, in Spain, southern Italy and Greece. Foster and Partner' have created efficient buildings like the Swiss Re headquarter. Foster + Partner' first important building was the Willis Faber & Dumas headquarters "The best architecture comes from a synthesis of all the elements that separately comprise a building" Digital computer models can be used to automatically create accurate physical models Micro station technology of computer-aided design and modeling technology Mix of inspiration, fascination and motivation = 'Integration'.Mean bringing disparate elements into harmony, or breaking down conventional social and spatial boundaries - Hongkong and Shanghai Bank Headquarters - Millennium Tower -Hong Kong, China, 1986 It represented a powerful expression of confidence in the future of the British colony when the tower opened in 1986. The building is divided into three vertically distinct bays of different heights- 35, 47, and 28 stories.

- Airport Desking System
- Library Storage System
- Tabula Table System It was designed to provide 140,000 square metres of accommodation, including dealing floors, apartments, shops, restaurants and garden. The glass, steel, and concrete structure was intend to rise 385 meters above the city's medieval street pattern. Cross section through the tower Norman Foster's sketch of the tower's bifurcated summit. At the heart of the design is a flexible kit of precision-engineered components that can be combined to create bespoke working environments. Commissioned to celebrate the Millennium, the Nomos 2000 table has a distinctive oval top, which encourages better eyes contact across its length and makes it ideal for use as a dining or boardroom table. Airport Desking System Developed for check-in, security and customs at Stansted Airport reflects the approach adopted for the design of the terminal itself. Capable of withstanding the expected levels of passenger activity within the airport The Airport Desking System at Stansted Airport, shown under development and in use. The key design criteria were ease of assembly, the ability to integrate a multitude of accessories, and durability. Tabula Table System It suit many different purposes, including library reading tables, conservation tables, display cases and shop vitrines. The inherent flexibility of the Tabula System means that tables of almost any context. Much of Meier's work builds on the work of architects of the early to mid-20th century, especially Le Corbusier in early phase. Meier has built more using Corbusier's ideas to construct building such as Villa Savoye and the Swiss Pavilion. Le Corbusier He is one of the pioneers of what is now called modern architecture. He was born in Switzerland and became a French citizen in 1930.

<Norman Foster: A Global Architecture> Martin Pawley 1999 Comparison Conclusion <Catalogue Foster + Partners> David Jenkins
<Norman Foster: A Global Architecture> Martin Pawley 1999 Mies Van der Rohe He was a German-American architect who widely regarded as one of the pioneering masters of modern architecture. Frank Lloyd Wright He was an American architect who believed in designing structures which were in harmony with humanity and its environment. Luis Barragán He was an Mexican architect who often quoted in reference to minimalist architecture. View of Cornell University View of Getty Center Philosophy He ignored the fashion trends of modern architecture and maintained his own design philosophy. He maintained a specific and unalterable attitude toward the design of buildings. The three of the most significant concepts of Richard Meier 's work are Light, Color and Place. His architecture shows how plain geometry, layered definition of spaces and effects of light and shade, allow Richard Meier to create clear and comprehensible spaces. Methodology in Design Meier has a concept of designing very clear and his works are easily recognized. He created a series of striking, but related designs He usually designs white Neo-Corbusian forms with enameled panels and glass. The structure usually play with the linear relationships of ramps and handrails "What is it that makes a space a place." - Richard Meier Building Jubilee Church It located at Tor Tre Teste in Rome. The Church's site is divided into four main parts: first, the precinct, including the church and community center; second, the northeast terrace; third, the northwest recreation court; fourth, the west parking area. View From Community Center The sketch shows that there is a definite sense of composition, play of light and inter-relation of mass and void. View From Front Door OCT Shenzhen Clubhouse 2012 The geometry of the Clubhouse follows a precise focal point from which “layers” of distinct spaces radiate and terminate in a sweeping curve that is seen from the Cultural and Entertainment Center across the water. The building complex has a radiating plan that fans out around the eastern edge of the island. View From Outside Floor Plan Furniture Each of the pieces is wood with choice of a black or white lacquer, or natural wood, hand-rubbed finish. The collection is an evolution of current capabilities of wood-in bending, evoking the craftsmanship of classic mortise and reflecting Meier’s strong formal vocabulary of architectural expression. First introduced by Knoll International in the 1980s. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Meier Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Meier

Richard Meire ignored the fashion trends of modern architecture and maintained his own design philosophy. Methodology Richard Meier think that structure usually play with the linear relationships of ramps and handrails Norman Foster used to design a furniture with the combination of technology, functionality and flexibility. Richard Meier think that the capabilities of wood-in bending evoking the craftsmanship of classic mortise and reflecting formal vocabulary of architectural expression. Although the influences between them are the same, but it doesn't mean their idea will be the same.

They have their own style to express their design concept on building and furniture, but they didn't forget the factor of functionality to people who will use the space. THANK YOU!
