The renowned Swiss architect Annette Gigon characterizes the work of Gigon / GuyerArchitects as a list of contrasts. She speaks about physical presence in relation to idea; about “low” and “high”; about various places, relation between atmosphere and Earth’s surface; about small and large projects. Architecture in Annette Gigon and Mike Guyer’s rendition is characterized by their distinctive approach to building structures and materials. In each project, they develop a unique concept and form based on the given context.

Annette Gigon (*1959) graduated from the Faculty of Architecture ETH Zurich in 1984. Together with Mike Guyer she founded architectonic office Gigon /Guyer Architects in 1989. They have attracted international attention with one of their first projects - Kirchner Museum in Davos. This realization was followed by other museums – extension of a museum in Winterthur or Archaeologic Museum and Park in Kalkriese. In recent years, the office has been working on apartment houses and administrative buildings, too. The key project was the skyscraper Prime Tower in Zurich, that was realized on the basis of an architectonic competition. Annette Gigon is teaching at the ETH Zurich since 2012.
