The New York Times pub­lished a story in March de­tail­ing sev­eral in­ci­dents of sex­ual harassment al­legedly per­pe­trated by ar­chi­tect Richard Meier. Four of the five women were col­leagues, and two de­scribed events they say took place within the last decade. The 83-year-old Meier re­sponded to the ac­cu­sa­tions by im­me­di­ately stepping down from his epony­mous firm, for what he says is a six-month leave of ab­sence, say­ing, “I am deeply trou­bled and embarrassed by the ac­counts of sev­eral women who were of­fended by my words and ac­tions. While our rec­ol­lec­tions may dif­fer, I sin­cerely apol­o­gize to any­one who was of­fended by my be­hav­iour.”
