Herzog and de Meuron are my “secret” favorite architects. Rooting for them is like rooting for the Yankees or the Steelers for that matter (which is really saying something for me). They are just too good all the time. Hard to deny that they are really excellent engineers with a true talent for design. This Prada store is a better shopping experience and in my opinion, much better than Koolhaus implementation in Soho, NYC.
