The Atheneum--page 2 of 5 (views of the curved west front)

Richard Meier
1978-79



The west front; details looking north and south

 
The curve of the west front echoes the bends in the nearby river, just as in the Getty Center (two decades later) the orientation of the buildings follows the curve of the Los Angeles freeway and the nearby Pacific Ocean.



See also distant views of the exterior and details of the west entrance, the south and east facades, and the interior.
