Herzog & de Meuron

Amazing!!! Apparently formal, exaggerated, gratuitous… nothing could be further from the truth!!!

This façade is covered by an extraordinary sun and rain screen. Try to drive the rain water to the inside… impossible!! Only a horrible wind could achieve that by moving water against gravity.

The Forum Building façade has hardly been discussed, perhaps because it was eclipsed by other buildings in the same area and by other aspects of the Forum Building itself. However, after fourteen years, this risky lightweight solution has been successfully integrated into the city’s landscape. The original electric blue has slightly dulled, at the same time as a salty dust patina has added enriching nuances.
