El Croquis 152/153 issue showcases the architectural practice of Herzog & de Meuron and their projects between 2005–2010. The issue introduces the office and its partners and their award-winning, international production.
The issue includes an essay titled “Programme, monument, landscape” by Jean-François Chevrier who explains some of the principal ideas behind Herzog & de Meuron’s architectural thinking. The issue also contains an interview with the founding partners Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron. The showcased projects include the transformation of the Tate Modern, the Vitra House, Cultural Complex Luz, the National Stadium for the 2008 Olympic Games and many more. As in all El Croquis issues, the projects have been lavishly illustrated with colour photographs and architectural drawings.
