Herzog & de Meuron Architects – Introduction

Herzog de Meuron are celebrated Swiss architects. Their buildings are consistently innovative and contemporary. Designs by the studio are bold but not typically curvilinear (the Bird’s Nest is not typical) like major architects such as Zaha Hadid or Frank Gehry. Similar famous architects to Herzog de Meuron include Rem Koolhaas (OMA) and Jean Nouvel in the use of strong, dynamic forms that are cleanly detailed.
