Herzog and de Meuron: Alchemy of Buildings & Tate Modern captures the unique style and collective vision of award winning Swiss architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron by visiting several of their completed projects, including the Tate Modern in London.  The revamped power station, which now houses contemporary art, earned the admiration of both art lovers and architectural critics, and stands as a shining example of the pair's collaborative genius.
