Annette Gigon graduated from the ETH in Zurich in 1984. In 1989 she and Mike Guyer founded Gigon/Guyer Architects in Zurich. Their firm soon attracted international attention with museum projects such as the Kirchner Museum in Davos, the Museum Extension in Winterthur, Kunstmuseum Appenzell, or the Archaeological Museum and Park in Kalkriese near Osnabrück, Germany. In addition to other museum projects, for instance, the Swiss Museum of Transport in Lucerne, Gigon/Guyer have additionally devoted themselves to working out new solutions for both exclusive and cost-effective residential architecture and office buildings, among them, the office high-rise Prime Tower in Zurich, the Würth Haus Rorschach, and the remodeling of the Löwenbräu-Areal. Since 2012 Annette Gigon has been Professor at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich. The work of Gigon/Guyer has been honored with several prizes at home and abroad.
