The New York Times reported Tuesday that renowned Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Meier has been accused of sexual harassment by 5 women.
In the wake of the allegations, Sotheby's closed an exhibit of collages and silk-screens by Meier at its S2 Gallery in New York. Cornell also announced a decision to turn down Meier's gift to chair the architecture department and cancelled a related event.
J. Paul Getty Trust has halted plans for a dinner in Meier's honor in New York next week to mark the museum’s 20th anniversary. Meier designed LA's Getty Center in 1997.
The architect has issued an apology and taken a leave from his firm.
