"Now I am an agnostic but I will definate visit this Church when I go to Rome next;http://www.richardmeier.com/rome.htmlRichard Meier really out did himself this time. Just beautiful!"Aha! Pope Julius II's plan is working on you, too, is it? Get 'em in by fear of damnation, get 'em in with the music, get 'em in with the architecture, just get 'em in.Actually, I'm not fond of this one myself. It seems like this building can be described as "Richard Meier imagines what it would be like to be Frank Gehry with self-control." Which, t seems to me misses the essence of what Frank Gehry is seeking and misses the point of what Richard Meier has been seeking. But that's just me looking at the pictures.This is probably a good time to bring out a point I was fortunate to learn long ago (though haven't always followed): Avoid criticizing buildings from drawings or pictures only; the character of the space, the play of light on the materials, the interaction of the building with its surroundings and often much of the architect's intent is never really communicated except by the genuine article.mglf
