Herzog & de Meuron

I read the long and rightly admiring profile of Herzog and de Meuron in today’s FT,  but was surprised to find that there was no mention of their biggest projects currently in London – the two huge new office blocks, one of which is cantilevered on top of Liverpool Street Station.   This, if it is permitted, will become part of their legacy:  two elephantine and bland office blocks which will disfigure this part of the city.

I am hugely looking forward to their exhibition at the RA and am a great admirer of their international museum work, but it is sad that they are willing to lend their name and reputation to one of the grosser examples of current corporate development.
