Architects behind Tate Modern chosen to design new Vancouver Art Gallery

The Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron – among the world’s leading designers – has been selected to design a new Vancouver Art Gallery. The firm will have two themes: building for art, and making downtown work better.

HdM, which designed Beijing’s Bird’s Nest Olympic stadium and London’s Tate Modern gallery, beat four other firms on the VAG’s shortlist, propelled by a record of designing great museums and a vision to create a building that will suit its location.
