Herzog & de Meuron to collaborate with Hans Ulrich Obrist for the Swiss Pavilion at the Architecture Biennale 2014
ZURICH, SWITZERLAND, 5 March 2014 – Herzog & de Meuron have been invited by Hans Ulrich Obrist to co-curate the Swiss Pavilion at this year’s Architecture Biennale in Venice: "Lucius Burckhardt and Cedric Price – A stroll through a fun palace" revisits the recent past of architecture through retrospectives of Lucius Burckhardt (1925–2003) and Cedric Price (1934–2003). The project curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist is a multifaceted collaboration between different architects, artists and consultants.

“As former students of Lucius Burckhardt, we were very happy to accept Hans Ulrich Obrist’s invitation to contribute to this small Biennale project – the longer we worked on it and thought about it, the less physical the exhibition concept became, so that, in the end, only Lucius’s and Cedric’s mental universe were floating in space.”
Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron.

The display on Lucius Burckhardt is conceived by Herzog & de Meuron in collaboration with the Lucius & Annemarie Burckhardt Foundation and Martin Schmitz Verlag. To present the temporary archives, Herzog & de Meuron have devised a site-specific system located in the graphic room of the Swiss Pavilion, aiming to create a new system of knowledge and ideas.
