HERZOG & DE MEURON. Architecture and Construction Details

Who hasn’t heard of the internationally renowned architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron of Switzerland, and its unprecedented rise since its founding in 1978? How do these architects always succeed with innovative approaches, forging individuality and employing classical materials in heretofore unknown ways in their designs? Where do they find the inspiration for their unique ideas, and how do they achieve such a confident implementation of their designs? How detailed is the planning at Herzog & de Meuron?

We scoured our archives at Detail and uncovered more than 25 publications since 2000, including reports, interviews, technical contributions and several project files. This monograph from the Detail publishing house about Herzog & de Meuron delves, as usual, a bit deeper behind the scenes and describes processes, all while highlighting one thing: plenty of construction details.
