    Aims and Scope

    After eight years, the new volume on the complete works of Herzog & de Meuron is published covering the years 2005 to 2007. The book presents 60 projects, which show the architects at the height of their powers.

    Their designs encompass the full range of architectural devices and respond to contemporary developments with a wide range of solutions – the designs refine the interaction with the respective site, with projects ranging from a small private conversion project to a studio ensemble, through to residential towers and urban design projects.

    For their designs, Herzog & de Meuron again develop new processes and create references to classic modernism just as to their own oeuvre. Architecture becomes a means of providing physical presence and stability in an increasingly virtual world.
