This film visits examples of Pritzker Prize winning Swiss Architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron’s ground-breaking style, and their capacity to astonish and explore what might otherwise be ordinary shapes, materials and surfaces through innovative treatments and techniques. Their perspective on and approach to architecture; their design dialogue; the way their strenghts and weaknesses complement each other, and their collaborations with others, particularly artists. The last segment of the film covers the Tate Modern and has Sir Nicholas Serota, director of the Tate Gallery, recalling his idea of turning the disused power station into the Tate Modern, a successful conversion which has been applauded by professionals and art lovers alike.
