Richard Meier (born October 12, 1934) in Newark, New Jersey is an American architect known for his rationalist designs and the use of the colour white.  Meier was identified as one of The New York Five which refers to the group of five New York City architects (Peter Eisenman, Michael Graves, Charles Gwathmey, John Hejduk and Richard Meier). These five had a common allegiance to a pure form of architectural modernism, harkening back to the work of Le Corbusier in the 1920s and 1930s.
