The reference of 'their' is not clear in the sentence. As per the original sentence, 'their' can refer to either the curators or the Swiss designers. Logically it should refer to the Swiss designers because they are the one's who have made the contribution. So the correct option should clearly have this reference.

A.In order to document their contribution to the field of structural engineering, the curators at the university’s art museum organized a comprehensive exhibition of the work of leading Swiss designers, including photographs, diagrams, and models of their most famous bridges and buildings. Pronoun reference error as stated above.
B. In order to document the contribution of the Swiss to the field of structural engineering, the curators at the university’s art museum organized a comprehensive exhibition of the work of leading Swiss designers, including photographs, diagrams, and models of their most famous bridges and buildings. Correct option as this rectifies the pronoun reference problem in the original sentence
C. In order to document the contribution of the Swiss to the field of structural engineering, the curators at the university’s art museum organized a comprehensive exhibition of the work of leading Swiss designers, including photographs, diagrams, and models of its most famous bridges and buildings.The original error is corrected. But the usage of its to refer to the Swiss designers is incorrect
D. In order to document their contribution to the structural engineering field, a comprehensive exhibition was organized by the curators at the university’s art museum of their photographs, diagrams, and models of the most famous bridges and buildings of leading Swiss designers.Pronoun reference error as stated above. The usage of the second 'their' is also ambiguous.
E. The curators at the university’s art museum, in order to document their contribution to the field, organized a comprehensive exhibition of the work of leading Swiss designers, including photographs, diagrams, and models of their most famous bridges and buildings.Pronoun reference error as stated above. In fact here the pronoun incorrectly refers to the curators.

I thought likewise.."its" can only refer to the Swiss in C, so I didn't think there was an antecedent error.

I have the same doubt. I also picked C, as 'its' can refer to Swiss. Designers don't own bridges and buildings.

Can someone please explain why B is correct over C?

In "... leading Swiss designers", "Swiss" is actually an adjective - so a pronoun cannot refer an adjective, it must refer a noun, i.e "designers". So, we need a plural pronoun to refer a plural noun.

Cheers !!
