The architectural office was established by Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron in 1978 in Basel. Currently, along with Christine Binswanger, Ascan Mergenthaler and Stefan Marbach, the practice is led by five senior partners. An international team of 360 collaborators is working on projects across Europe, North and South America and Asia. Herzog & de Meuron have designed a wide range of projects, from the small scale of a private home to the large scale of urban design. While many of their projects are highly recognized public facilities, such as stadiums and museums, they have also completed several distinguished private projects, including apartment buildings, offices and factories.
Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron are both visiting professors at Harvard University, USA (since 1994), and teach at the ETH, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (since 1999). They are co-founders of the ETH Studio Basel – Contemporary City Institute. The practice has been awarded numerous prizes, including The Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2001, and the Praemium Imperiale, in 2007.
