QBN Session #1: Live and In Concert

First, organizing and selling out a $200+ full day-long design seminar on a busy workday Friday in Los Angeles should be recognized as no easy task. Having it at Richard Meier‘s posh Getty digs and featuring a world-class lineup is coup number two.

It was revealed today that architect Richard Meier keeps a collection of models–some used, some unused–in a bare-bones, poorly-lit building in Long Island City. Apparently you can even visit with the models by making “appointments” on Fridays. Call (212)967-6060 for a good time.

We always knew that Meier was a sick, sick man.
