Herzog & de Meuron + Ai Weiwei : Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2012 by Herzog & de Meuron ( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 2008, Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron and Chinese artist Ai Weiwei joined forces to design the celebrated Beijing National Stadium for the Olympic Games. In 2012, the team came together again for the Serpentine Gallery's acclaimed annual commission, as part of the London 2012 Festival, the culmination of the Cultural Olympiad. Their pavilion takes visitors beneath the Serpentine's lawn to explore the hidden history of its previous pavilions. Supporting the structure from below, eleven columns symbolize past pavilions, and a twelfth represents the current one. The pavilion's interior is clad in cork, to evoke the excavated earth, and is built as a network of pathways and trenches. Herzog & de Meuron and Weiwei's archaeological approach creates a space that invites visitors to look beneath the surface of the park as well as back in time to the inspiration of earlier structures.--Provided by publisher

Bird's Nest Herzog & de Meuron in China by Christoph Schaub ( Visual )
5 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in German and English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
China is changing fast. More building work went on in China in the last year than in the whole of Europe over the last few years. Internationally reputed architects are in demand. The Basle-based star architects Herzog & de Meuron (Tate Modern in London, Allianz Arena football stadium in Munich, De Young Museum in San Francisco, among other projects) have been commissioned to build the National Stadium for the 2008 Olympics. The two architects have another project in progress in the Chinese province, where they are building an entire district for 300,000 people in Jinhua, a city with 3 million inhabitants. This project caters for the daily needs of the Chinese population. The documentary by Christoph Schaub and Michael Schindhelm shows how the Chinese culture affects the construction work of the architects: The specific architectonic form and the struggle to achieve it give us information about the society, the culture and everyday life in China. BIRD'S NEST - HERZOG & DE MEURON IN CHINA explores how these prestige buildings are being built in China. On the one hand, the documentary attempts to understand the two architects' very own method of contextual building applied successfully again and again. On the other hand, it explores the Chinese side: their intentions, their expectations, and their strategies in this complex creation process

Nairobi, Kenya : migration shaping the city by Shadi Rahbaran ( Book )
2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nairobi, in its short history spanning just over one hundred years, has grown to be one of the most varied and international cities of our contemporary world. Migration has been shown as one of the key forces influencing the city. In the context of Nairobi's complex colonial and postindependence political trajectory, migration has reinforced ethnic, spatial, and economic differences, leading to the formation of multiple power structures. This process is evident in the city's radically different urban patterns. The book documents, along specific neighborhoods, how different cultures of urban life constitute the city today

Tate Modern by Beat Kuert ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Tate Modern was opened to the public in London on May 12th 2000. The new building is part of the Tate Gallery, the largest contemporary art museum in the world. Sir Nicholas Serota, director of the Tate Gallery, recalls his idea of turning the power station, which was built in various stages by Sir Gilbert Scott between 1948 and 1963, into the Tate Modern. The conversion of the disused power station, as designed by the Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron, was applauded by professionals and art lovers alike. Starting from an electric power station running on gas oil they have created an architectural masterpiece whose fame will be recognized well beyond London. Thanks to the contribution of Jacques Herzog and Harry Gugger, partners in the Herzog & de Meuron practice, the documentary retraces some fascinating insights into the architecture of the Tate Modern
