Signal Box, Herzog & De Meuron 1998
Hiroshi Sugimoto (Japanese, b. 1948) is a Japanese artist who explores the nature of time, memory, dreams, and photography in an unconventional manner. Sugimoto's works are included in the permanent collections of the National Gallery Victoria, Melbourne; Tate Modern, London; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; The Museum of Modern Art, New York, among others. Sugimoto currently lives and works between New York, NY and Tokyo, Japan.
Intrigued by architecture, Japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto has captured numerous notable buildings and structures as part of his career-long investigation of time and space. To shoot Herzog & De Meuron's Signal Box building, Sugimoto used a large-format camera from the 19th century. This camera allowed him to create an atmospheric portrait of the Pritzker prize-winning building and a landmark of form and function in Basel, Switzerland.
