The internationally renowned architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron has experienced an unprecedented rise since it was founded in 1978. How do these architects manage to repeatedly break new ground and use supposedly classic materials in an unfamiliar way in design? How does one come up with such unique ideas and successfully implement such design ideas in practice? We have bundled in a fresh layout the numerous reports, interviews, online and technical articles as well extensive project documentation about the successful firm. This expanded new edition of the Herzog & de Meuron monograph takes a look behind the scenes, describes processes and shows one thing above all: many construction details.
