Founded in 1998 by Emanuel Christ and Christoph Gantenbein in Basel, Switzerland, Christ & Gantenbein is interested in what the studio describes as "the sustainability of form." Mixing the ancient and the modern, the firm characterizes its approach as challenging materials through "a sensitive yet versatile manner," as expressed in projects for museums, housing, and office buildings throughout Europe. Christ will discuss some of his firm's recent projects, including: • Swiss National Museum Extension, a new zigzagging structure connected to the existing nineteenth-century building which provides new galleries, an auditorium, and a library.

Venue: The Great Hall at Cooper Union
