2G N°68 is the first monograph on Christ & Gantenbein, gathering 17 projects ranging from the early beginnings, through unrealised projects, to two museums in construction. Each project is richly documented with exclusive floor plans, elevations, sections and pictures. The content creates a holistic overview of Christ & Gantenbein's career in Switzerland and abroad which started more than 10 years ago.
The selection of works and projects is accompanied by texts from Swiss historian Philip Ursprung, Portuguese architect Diogo Seixas Lopes and French critic Éric Lapierre. The nexus section includes a text and photographs by the architects themselves regarding a trip to Italy and an academic study about typologies of the ordinary in four cities: Hong Kong, Rome, New York and Buenos Aires.
