Herzog & de Meuron

Swiss architectural firm Herzog & de Meuron is at the cutting edge of contemporary design. Renowned for Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall, Beijing’s ‘Bird’s Nest’ Olympics stadium, and Miami Beach’s Lincoln Road multi-use parking structure, we reveal the evolution of their latest buildings and inner workings of their practice.

Herzog & de Meuron was founded in Basel over 40 years ago. Now, it is an international partnership with projects across the globe – among them museums, hospitals, skyscrapers, arenas, and private and civic buildings.

Embracing an experimental approach, this exhibition will look at a selection of their projects, both complete and still in the works. With film and digital experiences, accompanied by models, material samples and prototypes, it will invite us to explore the perception and experience of architecture and its surrounding contexts.

Curated in close collaboration with the architects, it is a rare opportunity to see the inner workings of what The New York Times dubbed “one of the most admired architecture firms in the world.”
