Quick Reference

Known as the ‘Whites’ because of their predominantly white buildings (notably those of Meier), they were a loose grouping of American architects (the others were Eisenman, Graves, Gwathmey, and Hejduk) who exhibited in NYC in 1969, and were perceived as producing revisions of International Modernist white buildings of the 1920s influenced by the works of Rietveld and Terragni in particular. They have been described as Neo-Rationalists.
