Richard Gluckman graduated and carried out his postgraduate studies in architecture at Syracuse University, New York.
His studio, Gluckman Mayner Architects, has worked on a wide range of institutional, commercial and residential projects in Europe, the United States and Asia. Gluckman’s professional career has been closely linked to contemporary art and the design of spaces for art galleries all over the world.
His studio is well known for its rigorous approach to design and construction. Spaces designed by Gluckman are magnificent examples of the link between architecture and the art industry. Some of his most notable projects have been the DIA Centre for the Arts in New York (1987), the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburg (1994), the extension to the Whitney Museum in New York (1995-1998), the Deutsche Guggenheim Museum in Berlin, the Destination Spa Mii amo in Sedona (2000), the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum (1997) and the Mori Art Centre in Tokyo (2003), among others.
In Spain, Gluckman has designed the Marlborough Gallery, and built the Picasso Museum in Malaga, with local collaboration from the Cámara/Martín Delgado team.
Richard Gluckman uses materials such as methacrylate in unexpected and surprising ways. Gluckman’s idea takes its inspiration from the "box within a box" concept. This concept helps organise the approach to the different activities that can be carried out in a space of this size.
It is about trying to distinguish the experience of being in a hotel from that of being at home. For this purpose, industrial materials such as aluminium, plastic and glass are used in unfamiliar ways. Gluckman’s concept is surprising for its simple organisation of space and its luminosity, in addition to the absence of any superfluous element. The rooms have a simple décor with a touch of colour. Thus, the central feature is a transparent glass wall with four methacrylate alcoves. Gluckman has differentiated the rooms by given the alcoves different colours. The ones in the north side of the building are blue and the ones in the south side are yellow. Gluckman himself explains that he mixes rich materials such as methacrylate, with others he calls "poor", such as fibrocement, without it seeming odd or artificial.
