Description

A ‘vessel for living’ Glenn Adamson called the remarkable residence Richard Meier designed to house Sandra and Louis Grotta’s collection of contemporary studio jewellery and significant works in wood, ceramic and fiber. The building was conceived around the collection, framing the objects within the open architecture, which comprises an equal blend of glass and concrete. Nature, visible from many vantage points, plays an essential supporting role. The Grotta Home by Richard Meier: A Marriage of Architecture and Craft is rich in photographs of the collection and provides impressive insights into this exceptionally personal project by Richard Meier. The accompanying essays afford the reader a greater sense of how the Grottas have not simply acquired art but have immersed themselves in it.
