Pound Ridge House, 1969
RICHARD MEIER

This is an early unbuilt project by Richard Meier. The resemblance with his most famous house, the Smith House (1965/67) is noticiable, however in this case he decided to extend the interior to a triple height that makes the resultant space a little uncontrolled. He probably noticed this, because in later projects he found much better ways of controlling interior spaces. 

Nevertheless, this proyect This design plays with curved, rectangular and cylindrical volumes without compromising the essentially cubic form of the design.

This experimet is probably an important part of his evolution as an architect.
