Herzog & de Meuron has designed a wide range of projects from the small scale of a private home to the large scale of urban design. While many of their projects are highly recognized public facilities, such as their stadiums and museums, they have also completed several distinguished private projects including apartment buildings, offices, and factories. Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron have been awarded numerous prizes including the Pritzker Architecture Prize (USA) in 2001, the RIBA Royal Gold Medal (UK) and the Praemium Imperiale (Japan), both in 2007.

Perhaps the firm‘s highest profile museum project to date is the conversion of the Bankside power plant to Tate Modern in London, UK (2000). In 2005 Herzog & de Meuron were commissioned by Tate again to develop a scheme for the expansion of the gallery and its surrounding areas – the result, The Tate Modern Project (Switch House) opened in June 2016. The first phase of its extension, The Tanks – three circular industrial chambers over thirty metres across and seven metres high dedicated to exhibiting live art, performance, installation and film works – had opened in July 2012.
