Herzog & de Meuron 1978-2002 (AV)
Luis Fernández-Galiano (Ed)
This monograph explores the roots and legacy of Herzog & de Meuron, from its beginnings in the late 1970s through the turn of the century. With a selection of more than 40 exemplary buildings and projects, the book presents a visual history of the Basel-based firm’s evolution from modest scales and houses to high-profile works like Prada Aoyama in Tokyo, National Stadium in Beijing, CaixaForum Madrid, and the De Young Museum in San Francisco. Significantly, the book covers the period in which Herzog & de Meuron reinvented themselves, in the year 1998, through a burst of material experiences for which it is known today.
