The Royal Academy of Arts in London is set to open an exhibition on the work of Herzog & de Meuron. Located in the Gabrielle Jungels-Winkler Galleries from July 14th to October 15th, the exhibition was created in collaboration with the architects to give visitors “an insight into the thinking and approaches” applied to the firm’s work.
Notable projects by the firm to feature in the exhibition includes Tate Modern, London (2000 and 2016), Laban Dance Centre, London (2003), the National Stadium Beijing (Bird’s Nest) (2008), Elbphilharmonie Hamburg (2016), REHAB Basel (2002 and 2020), M+, Hong Kong (2021), the Royal College of Art, London (2022) and Kinderspital Zürich (to be completed in 2024).
The exhibition will be arranged in a sequence of three spaces that “together explore the ideas and processes in the making and experience of architecture.” The first room will bring a part of the firm’s open storage and research space from Basel to London, featuring tall timber shelves holding approximately 400 objects from models and materials to photographs and film clips. An AR experience will also allow visitors to explore 3D models and animations of selected projects.
The second room will function as a film space with a large central screen depicting daily life at the firm’s REHAB Clinic for Neurorehabilitation and Paraplegiology in Basel. The opposite side of the screen will feature a film installation based on observations of people occupying and exploring H&dM projects.
The final room will be dedicated to healing architecture and will focus on a single project which is currently under construction, the Kinderspital Zürich, Switzerland. The display will give visitors an insight into the work process and the questions H&dM asks itself when approaching the design of a healing space, and will also hold a 1:1 interior mock-up of a section of a hospital patient room.
