Kirchner Museum Davos architecture

The Kirchner Museum Davos was built in 1992 by internationally renowned Zurich architects Annette Gigon and Mike Guyer. With its simple, consistent design of glass, concrete, steel and wood, the building continues to be regarded as a pioneering example of a new approach to museum architecture. It uniquely combines functionality and aesthetics, intrinsic architectural value, and service to art. In 2012, Gigon/Guyer received Switzerland’s most valuable architecture prize, the Velux Foundation’s Daylight Award, for the Kirchner Museum Davos.
