Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron have been successful in combining an artistic idea of architecture with an efficient response to the changing scenarios of globalisation. On the other hand, they display a stubborn militancy in their design discipline and have a firm grasp of the economic and logistical demands faced by a firm that is simultaneously a “brand” and an “enterprise”. This issue features three of their recently completed museums: M+Museum in Hong Kong, Küppersmühle Museum extension in Duisburg, and SONGEUN Art Space in Seoul. Also in this issue, projects that show how dwellings designed for animals can still be sensitive, inspiring architecture.
