Christine Binswanger joined Herzog & de Meuron in 1991, became a Partner in 1994 and has been Senior Partner since 2009. She is responsible for projects in many countries, with particular focus in Switzerland, France, Spain and the USA. She has been in charge of many museum projects including the expansion of the Walker Art Center; the recently opened PAMM Pérez Art Museum Miami; the extension of the Musée Unterlinden; and the Kolkata Museum of Modern Art in India. REHAB Basel, Centre for Spinal Cord and Brain Injuries, and the new Kinderspital Zürich, are notable examples of a number of hospital projects she leads. Her experience in urban development includes large civic planning projects such as the Master Plan for Lyon Confluence in France, and the transformation of public infrastructure in Burgos, Spain. Her expertise also extends to buildings that redefine existing typologies such as Rue des Suisses Apartment Buildings in Paris and 1111 Lincoln Road, a mixed-use structure for parking, retail, a restaurant and private residence in Miami Beach.

Christine studied architecture at the ETH Zurich from 1984 to 1990 and received the Meret Oppenheim Prize in 2004 in recognition of her active leadership in the architecture and art community.
