Emanuel Christ and Christoph Gantenbein graduated in the ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) in 1998, since then they have maintained a balance between their profession and academic involvement. After lectureships inter alia at the ETH Studio Basel (2000–2005), the HGK Basel (2002–2003), the Accademia di Architettura in Mendrisio (2004, 2006, 2009) and the Oslo School of Architecture and Design (2008), they returned to the ETH Zurich (2010–2015). They currently teach at Harvard GSD.

After internationally acclaimed projects in London, Jalisco (Mexico) and Jinhua (China), their studio Christ & Gantenbein continues to cement its reputation at home and abroad with numerous museum concepts as well as a broad range of private and public commissions. Among the designs most recently realised stand out an extension to the Kunstmuseum Basel, the renovation of and extension to the Swiss National Museum in Zurich.
