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.
