Internationally recognised as one of the world's leading architectural firms, Herzog & de Meuron is responsible for designing significant landmarks such as the ‘Bird’s Nest' National Stadium in Beijing for the 2008 Olympics. In 2001, the practice was awarded the Pritzker Prize, considered to be architecture's highest honour.
One of the firm's best known works is the Tate Modern in London, UK's national museum of modern and contemporary art. Herzog & de Meuron famously converted the former Bankside Power Station into a museum, one of the world's most celebrated examples of adaptive re-use. The practice's vision for the Tate Modern's latest extension - The Tate Modern Project - will help redefine the museum for the 21st century.
