Current Work is a lecture series featuring leading figures in the worlds of architecture, urbanism, design, and art.


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.
