Annette Gigon and Mike Guyer both graduated from the ETH Zurich and established their office together in 1989. With museum projects such as the Kirchner Museum in Davos, Kunstmuseum Appenzell and the archaeological museum and park in Kalkriese near Osnabrück, Germany, they attracted international attention. In addition to other museum buildings, Gigon/Guyer have in recent years extended their devotion to residential architecture and office buildings, such as the office high-rise Prime Tower in Zurich, the Würth Haus Rorschach and the remodeling of the Löwenbräu-Areal. Since 2012 Annette Gigon and Mike Guyer are Professors of Architecture and Technology at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. For their work Gigon/Guyer have been awarded many prizes within the country and abroad, including the Fritz Schumacher Prize in Germany, the RIBA Fellowship in Great Britain, and the Daylight Award, one of the highest endowed architecture prize in Switzerland.
Most of our building projects result from successful competition entries, while some are commissioned directly by clients. For either, we look forward to your request.
