A gorgeous, gargantuan selection of Herzog & de Meuron's key projects, with documentation by leading photographers, essays and archival materials

The complete works of Pritzker Prize-winning Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron comprise around 600 buildings in nearly 40 countries. This book is a personal selection by art historian Stanislaus von Moos and architect Arthur R egg of 25 of the most important projects from throughout Herzog & de Meuron's career--from the Park Avenue Armory in New York, Tate Modern in London, Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, New York and the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg to the National Stadium Beijing and 1111 Lincoln Road in Miami.
Through photographs by Balthasar Burkhard, Hannah Villiger, Margherita Spiluttini, Iwan Baan, Thomas Ruff and Wolfgang Tillmans, along with detailed technical data, plans and bibliographic references, Twentyfive x Herzog & de Meuron encapsulates all central aspects of the work of these influential architects.
Two comprehensive essays reveal Herzog & de Meuron's working methods: von Moos explores the influence of perception in painting, sculpture and photography on their practice, while R egg examines their ambivalent view of the built world and how it is expressed from project to project. The book also includes previously unpublished photographs by Pierre de Meuron and Jacques Herzog's postcard collection--unexplored visual archives with a direct influence on their architectural work.
