It made sense then for Herzog and De Meuron to return and finish the job.

The space is incredibly successful as an art gallery but also as an architectural performance; there are continuous structural accents inviting you to explore the sensuality of the space. From the inside the lattice brickwork is a welcome and original delight that insists on further inspection and accordingly reveals disguised benches bracketed into the window, ostensibly waiting for you all along.&nbsp;It is easy to navigate your way through the building but also extremely satisfying to get lost in it.&nbsp;</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/9s/9s041geaamzcwsdv.jpg"></p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/ok/okt5vi2pgfeoof01.jpg"></p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/ny/nyup28ksysfj8cds.jpg"></p><p>Offering almost certainly one of t...</p> http://archinect.com/news/article/149952038/vernacular-architectural-photographer-john-margolies-has-died Vernacular architectural photographer John Margolies has died Julia Ingalls 2016-06-16T13:10:00-04:00 >2016-06-16T13:10:55-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/7q/7q093l7rqjtzmg4z.jpg" width="514" height="341" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>Mr. Margolies, who died on May 26, at 76, was considered the country&rsquo;s foremost photographer of vernacular architecture &mdash; the coffee shops shaped like coffeepots; the gas station shaped like a teapot (the Teapot Dome Service Station in Zillah, Wash.); and the motels shaped like all manner of things, from wigwams to zeppelins to railroad cars &mdash; that once stood as proud totems along America&rsquo;s blue highways.</p></em><br /><br /><p>In memoriam, here are a few of Margolies' idiosyncratic finds, many of which were compiled into the 2010 book "John Margolies: Roadside America":</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/h2/h2rbovwqm6q5anu3.jpg"></p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/c9/c9sl7i4l7xxgvomn.jpg"></p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/1a/1aoxamwefrbwrsy4.jpg"></p><p>Other architectural photographers who are still doing their signature thing:</p><ul><li><a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/141904862/photographer-captures-the-beauty-of-beirut-s-architecture" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Photographer captures the beauty of Beirut's architecture</a></li><li><a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/149941590/b-ka-lemoine-s-cinematic-canon-acquired-by-moma" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">B&ecirc;ka &amp; Lemoine's cinematic canon acquired by MoMA</a></li><li><a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/147749081/photographer-captures-the-changing-face-of-shanghai" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Photographer captures the changing face of Shanghai</a></li></ul> http://archinect.com/news/article/149951976/ove-arup-celebrated-with-new-show-at-the-v-a Ove Arup celebrated with new show at the V&A Ellen Hancock 2016-06-16T10:17:00-04:00 >2016-06-18T22:42:22-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/kg/kgn225v5o5aqprqn.jpg" width="514" height="315" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>The show, curated by the V&amp;A&rsquo;s Maria Nicanor and Zofia Trafas White, is a fascinating exploration of the 20th century engineer&rsquo;s life and work, and how it has influenced today&rsquo;s practices in his field.
