Av Monographs 157-158: Herzog & De Meuron 2005-2013 (Paperback)
Taking as its cue the 2012 opening of their Serpentine Gallery Pavilion, this special double-issue features recent work by Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron. This, the third monograph published by AV on the studio, includes a selection of 35 works, both completed and still in progress, illustrating the last ten years of production. Among the featured projects are CaixaForum in Madrid, the Birds Nest stadium in Beijing, Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, VitraHaus in Weil am Rhein, Kolkata Museum of Modern Art and Cultural Complex Luz in São Paolo. A critical essay by Luis Fernández-Galiano presents their ideals as seen in the stage design for Attila and Tristan.
