A Study on the Ramp in Richard Meier's Architecture - on the basis of Flora Samuel's 'narrative path' -

 Abstract
Aiming at an investigation into ramps in Richard Meier's architecture, this paper analyzed five design examples - including the Frankfurt Museum for the Decorative Arts (1979-85) - on the basis of the 'narrative path' that Flora Samuel (2010) extracted from Le Corbusier's 'promenade architecturale'. As a result, this research clarified that the ramp as a key element to Meier's circulation system dramatizes our spatial experience within his buildings, and that it has two unique aspects of 'an elevation ramp' and 'a ramp hall'. These characteristics are meaningful since they show that Meier creatively developed the Corbusian precedent of ramp to match the contemporary context.
