The AJ’s 12 days of Christmas: Herzog & de Meuron

Herzog and de Meuron

Over the next nine days the AJ takes a look at the architects who have made the headlines this year. Next up: 

The Swiss practice kicked off 2015 with the news it was working on Chelsea FC’s new stadium. The much anticipated designs were revealed later in the year and in December were finally submitted for planning.

In the summer Tower Hamlets Council approved plans for a 57-storey residential tower in London’s Docklands designed by the practice. The skyscraper forms part of Allies and Morrison’s masterplan for the redevelopment of East London’s Wood Wharf area.

The practice’s founders Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron picked up the 2015 RIBA Jencks Award for their contribution to the theory and practice of architecture. The pair were hailed as champions in ‘the global search for an architecture of pluralism’. They were handed the £1,000 prize at a sold-out lecture at the RIBA in October.
