"Urban form evolves between type and incident, fabric and discontinuity, history and the moment of design. This dialogue strongly influenced the design of the Museum of Applied Art in Frankfurt am Main. It developed out of a notion of context that takes in not only geographic features but also historical and typological ones. In this sense, and in contrast to some of the earlier buildings for more rural or less historic sites, the museum is emphatically a public and an urban institution, a rejection of the modernist isolation of the building as a free-standing object distanced from its surroundings. The scheme here is meant to connect: to respond to, enlarge, and reinforce the public context and the urban fabric" (text from book 'Richard Meier: Architect 1964/1984').
