This week on GSAPP Conversations, Dean Amale Andraos speaks with architect and educator Emanuel Christ. Emanuel Christ is founding partner of Christ & Gantenbein, a leading architectural practice based in Basel, Switzerland. The firm’s work applies bold form and versatile material uses.
During their conversation, Christ discusses how he integrates his architectural approach into curriculum design while teaching at ETH Zurich and compares architectural education in Europe and the US. He also speaks about the social, environmental, formal, and technological problems and solutions that are being undertaken by the next generation of architects. This interview was conducted prior to his lecture at the school on November 18, 2019.
