CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The Getty Center, on a 110 acre hilltop in west Los Angeles, is the new home
for the Museum, the five Institutes, and the Grant Program that make up the J.
Paul Getty Trust. This study documents the planning and construction of the
Center, designed by Richard Meier and Partners. Included are a series of essays
that underscore the challenges faced by architect, contractor and owner as they
worked collaboratively throughout the course of the project, and a chronology
which identifies the key dates and events in the design and construction
process. Illustrated with images by accomplished photographers, site drawings
from Richard Meier and Partners and Robert Irwin's drawings of the Central
Gardens, which he designed, the book presents an insider's view of the story
behind the making of the Getty Center. Essays are included by Richard Meier,
Stephen D. Rountree and Ada Louise Huxtable.
