Swiss superstars of architecture
Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron created an architectural firm (founded in 1978) that’s garnered international awards for designing a prolific set of over a dozen major buildings known for their latticework and unconventional facade constructions. One of the more recent projects, finished in Feb. 2013, is a new hall of the Messe Basel, located in their hometown of Basel, Switzerland. It’s prominent feature, an exterior “puntured” atrium, begs to be photographed. The woven texture and curvaceous opening frames the sky for amazing abstract photos.
