Christ & Gantenbein

Basel, Switzerland

After internationally acclaimed projects in London, Mexico, and China, Christ & Gantenbein continues to cement its reputation with museum concepts such as the renovations and extensions to the Kunstmuseum in Basel (2016), the Swiss National Museum in Zurich (2016), as well as the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum in Cologne (ongoing). Housing schemes in Paris and Switzerland, as well as the Lindt Chocolate Competence Centre in Switzerland are, among others, currently on the drawing board. Five associates and thirty-five architects staff the practice established in 1998. Through the years, Christ & Gantenbein have equally committed to academic activities: most recent lectureships were at the ETH Zurich (2010–2015) and the Harvard GSD (2015–2016). In 2016, the studio was also invited to contribute the results of its work and research to the 15th edition of the Venice Biennale as well as the 4th Lisbon Architecture Triennial.
