American architect Richard Meier (1934–) is most widely known for his design of the 1997 Getty Center Complex in Brentwood. Meier had already received the highest honor for architecture in 1984, the Pritzker Prize, when he was commissioned to create the Getty’s Brentwood campus. While Meier is also known for his designs for the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art and the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, he is framed against his most iconic work in this photograph. The structure of the Getty rises above Meier’s head as if growing from the ideas of the creative force pictured.
