Over the last decade, Annette Gigon and Mike Guyer have been the brains behind an impressive range of constructions, both in Switzerland and abroad. Their projects cover a broad spectrum in terms of size, function and prestige, with everything from museums to residential properties, low-cost projects and high-profile buildings, subtle conversions and spectacular new builds, such as the recent and much-admired Prime Tower in Zurich.
The exhibition in the main hall of the ETH Zurich conveys an impression of this diversity. Film projections add a temporal dimension to the experience of viewing the architecture on display. The moving images by cinematographer Severin Kuhn capture everyday movements in and
around the buildings of a kind that conventional architectural photography rarely records, and thus transform inanimate constructions into animated objects. Some 30 buildings are transposed into the arcaded hall as luminous images. A brochure containing additional information
and plan material is available for visitors to take away. A detailed and comprehensive guide to the key buildings and projects realized by Gigon/Guyer Architects between 2001 and 2011 is being produced by Lars Müller Publishers to accompany
