Description

An affordable overview of the built and unbuilt works of Herzog & de Meuron, acclaimed by the New York Times as "one of the most admired architecture firms in the world"

Renowned for such prominent buildings as London's Tate Modern, Beijing's Bird's Nest National Stadium and 1111 Lincoln Road in Miami Beach, Herzog & de Meuron sits at the cutting edge of contemporary design. Founded in Basel more than 40 years ago, the Swiss architectural practice is now an international partnership with projects across the globe--among them, museums, hospitals, skyscrapers, arenas, and private and civic buildings.
Produced in close collaboration with the architects and published for a major exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, this volume gives an authoritative account of the inner workings of what the New York Times dubbed "one of the most admired architecture firms in the world." The book appraises a representative selection of its projects, both completed buildings and those still in the works, providing visual materials such as models, material samples and prototypes. Texts by leading writers, practitioners, filmmakers and thinkers also figure, offering expert analysis of the firm's commanding portfolio.
