The Laban Building was designed by Herzog & de Meuron, the Pritzker Prize-winning (2001) Swiss architects who also designed the Tate Modern and the National Stadium in Beijing for the 2008 Olympic Games. Herzog & de Meuron collaborated with visual artist Michael Craig-Martin to create this iconic and bold building.
