Jacques Herzog and Luis Fernández-Galiano

Architecture inspired by art


In conversation with Luis Fernández-Galiano, the architect Jacques Herzog presents a journey through his creative career focusing on several significant works: from his early days characterised by the use of natural materials and elemental and minimalist forms, to his evolution towards decorative elements conceived in a classical manner and the reconversion of industrial buildings, maintaining the structure of the constructions, such as the Tate Modern in London (2000), CaixaForum Madrid (2008) and the Elba Philharmonic in Hamburg (2015). Herzog asserts that one of the fundamental issues in architecture is tuning in with the space and public acceptance, as this is what brings the work to life. To conclude, he acknowledges the influence and his intellectual fascination with abstract visual artists.
