Rick Meghiddo, AIA, is an architect and filmmaker of architectural documentaries. He and his wife Ruth are the principals and founders of Meghiddo Architects (https://meghiddoarchitects.com/). Through short films, writing, and lecturing, he brings his “architect’s eye” to help both non-professionals and professionals to better understand the meaning, value, and complexities of architecture and art.
“Since the early 1970s, Ruth and I have tried to maintain our architectural practice to be consistently innovative, socially oriented, environmentally responsible, and aesthetic. Knowing multiple languages helped us to cross-cultural barriers. We also traveled extensively throughout Europe and the Americas to see great architecture. Sideways took me to teach urban design and coordinate research on artificial islands at Israel’s Technion. I also taught a class on the history of architecture at UCI. In 2002 we settled in Long Beach, and I was chosen by Mayor O’Neill as a Board Member of the Redevelopment Agency. Since my student days, a passion for cinema led me in 2012 to start producing architecture documentaries. What began as a hobby led me to make over one hundred short films. Last year I was awarded six Official Selections in film festivals and a Gold Special Mention. Although we live in a challenging time, I am optimistic for the long-term future. Architecture will be critical in solving many of the problems of population growth, climate change, and limited resources. And it is my belief that it will once again inspire and lead future generations toward a better world.”
