Since its founding in 1989, the office of Gigon/Guyer architects has designed a truly impressive series of projects. Among the most important are museum, residential, and office buildings, as well as mixed-use constructions. The recently completed Prime Tower and its annex buildings on the Maag site in Zurich have been internationally acclaimed. The monograph offers keen insight into how Annette Gigon and Mike Guyer understand architecture. The diverse concepts and the varied applications of design, material, form, and color employed in their projects are presented in detailed documentation of their work that includes photography, plans, and short texts. Three essays and a discussion between Patrick Gmur, Martin Steinmann, and the architects offer in-depth reflection and contextualization.
