Since their inflated bubbles and interactive installations of the 1960s, Coop Himmelb(l)au have pursued harsh interventions in urban contexts under the headline "architecture must burn." The group strive to create "architecture with fantasy, as buoyant and variable as clouds."

Consisting of the architects Wolf D. Prix, Helmut Swiczinsky and Michael Holzer, the group are among the leading international architecture offices today, known for their expressiveness and professionalism.

Among the recent projects that Coop Himmelb(l)au is undertaking throughout the world are the Musée des Confluences in Lyon, France, the House of Music in Aalborg, Denmark, the European Central Bank's new headquarters in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, and the Dalian International Conference Center in China.
