Herzog and de Meuron

The latest issue of The New Yorker has a nice article on the work of Herzog and de Meuron (winners of the 2001 Pritzker Prize). It focused primarily on the stadium they have built in Munich and the one they are building for the 2008 Olympics in Bejing - see #11). It also mentioned some of their other prominent works like the Walker Art Center in Minnesota, the Tate Modern in London, and the gorgeous condos Ian Schrager is building on Bond St. But unless I overlooked it, Goldberger's article doesn't mention the cool new Philharmonic Hall that they've designed for Hamburg. It's an interesting melding of the old, the new and the hall's surroundings. Take a look.
