Christ & Gantenbein was established by Emanuel Christ and Christoph Gantenbein in 1998. Together with their six associates Mona Farag, Julia Tobler, Tabea Lachenmann, Anna Flückiger, Michael Bertschmann, Victoria Easton and a team of 35 architects, they work on a wide range of projects: from private assignments, renovation of historic buildings to housing, office buildings and bridges as well as big scale urban masterplans.
One of their main focal points is museum architecture: the renovation and extension of the Swiss National Museum in Zurich as well as the extension of Basel's Kunstmuseum are actually being planned. Built projects are to be found in Switzerland, Germany, England, China and Mexico.
After many teaching assignments in Switzerland and abroad, Emanuel Christ and Christoph Gantenbein took up professorships at the ETH Zurich in 2010.
