Making Architecture:
The Getty Center from
Construction to Completion

The Getty Center, Los Angeles
1997–98

An inaugural exhibition of the new, Richard Meier-designed Getty Center, this show chronicled in models, photographs, and actual building components the 17-year process of designing and constructing one of the most important arts complexes of the latter part of the 20th century. In addition to Meier's contribution, the show explored the work of artist Robert Irwin, who designed the Getty Garden, and Thierry Despont, designer of the Museum's decorative arts galleries.
