«Around the Corner» suggests two different ways to reflect upon
Christ & Gantenbein’s work, a distinct approach in the lineage of Swiss
architecture. A conversation elucidates Emanuel Christ’s and Christoph
Gantenbein’s design method by discussing and documenting two very
different projects — the VoltaMitte housing complex in Basel and the
Swiss Church in London. As a theoretical rationale, an essay throws
light on the meaning and intention of Christ & Gantenbein’s architectural
oeuvre, from their winning competition entry for theextension of the
Swiss National Museum in Zurich to their most recent projects.
