In my opinion, Herzog & de Meuron has been one of the few practices pushing new forms on architecture. They always start with something vernacular, extracting its inner essence and materializing it into something new that you will immediately understand by looking at the building (or the renders). A dialog between art and the current state of our society, embodied on industrial facilities, residential projects, mixed use complexes.

Their book “Herzog & de Meuron: Natural History” is a must.

We now bring you a special on Herzog & de Meuron, with photos by  Barcelona-based photographer Duccio Malagamba (previously featured on our AD Photographers section).

Eleven works by the Swiss practice after the break:

A showroom for Vitra house furniture, using the image that we will associate to a house. The stacked volumes articulate a series of visual relations while containing a clear path for the visitors. More info on our previous feature on the Vitra Haus.
