Herzog & de Meuron

Martin Knüsel is a Partner at Herzog & de Meuron. His first collaborations within the practice focused mainly on Spanish work, such as Ciudad del Flamenco in Jerez and the master plan and Bulevar in Burgos, which included exhibition design as well as architectural and urban planning; these projects were followed by work on Roche Bau 1. After a three-year period of research and teaching, he returned to the practice in 2014, initially working on M+ in Hong Kong and focusing again on various Roche projects in Basel. Since 2016, he has been deeply involved in the concept and early phases of several projects, such as the Museum der Moderne – berlin modern in Berlin and Autobahnkirche in Andeer, Switzerland; Martin has also led a number of projects including SongEun ArtSpace and Samtan HQ in Seoul. Alongside project responsibilities, Martin is a member of Herzog & de Meuron’s Executive Board.

Martin earned his degree in architecture at ETH Zurich in 2003, including an exchange period at Harvard University, finished with distinction. From 2011 to 2013, he taught at the ETH Future Cities Lab in Singapore. Within the chair of Milica Topalovic, he was responsible for the ETH exhibition project ‘Constructed Land’ shown at the International Architectural Biennale Rotterdam in 2014.
