He will also share insights into the studio culture and methods that continue to fuel one of the most successful and highly regarded architecture practices in the world, observing that;
“…the carefully crafted studio culture of Herzog & de Meuron was central to consistently producing the most extraordinary and sensitive architecture in an amazing variety of settings and conditions”.
