More than any of their contemporaries, the Swiss architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron (both b. 1950) are challenging the boundaries between architecture and art. Herzog & de Meuron: Natural History explores that challenge, examining how the work of these architects has drawn upon the art of both past and present and brought architecture into dialogue with the art of our time. Echoing an encyclopedia, this publication, which accompanies an exhibition of the same name organized by the Canadian Centre for Architecture, reflects the "natural history museum" structure of the exhibition.

Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron have had nearly parallel careers. They were born in 1950, in Basel, Switzerland, attended the same schools, and formed a partnership in 1978. Recipients of the 2001 Pritzker Architecture Prize, their highest profile project to date is the Tate Modern, for which they transformed the giant Bankside power station in London into a suite of new galleries. They are currently at work on an extension to the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis and the New de Young Museum in San Francisco.
