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.

The Grotta Home by Richard Meier - book

A masterpiece. The home is superb, the art collection magnificent and the photography extraordinary. The history of the Grotta family and all the essays were extremely informative giving the reader an incredible perspective of the origins of what BrownGrotta gives all of us art lovers today. This book is definitely a "must have" in all personal and public art books collection. BRAVO!
