Architecture has long been the subject that dominated Gerald Zugmann's work, but his photography has, from the outset, aimed at more than the simple reproduction of architectural reality. His black and white photographs are portraits, pictures that attempt to capture the essence of a building, its personality as it were. These artistic interpretations using the camera have resulted in his being a much sought-after partner for architects. The choice of the architectural projects shown is purely subjective, and illustrates the work of five Austrian architects: Coop Himmelblau, Guenter Domenig, Boris Podrecca, Carl Pruscha and Peter Noever. The book is completed by photographs of the tomb, "Tomba Brion)", by Carlo Scarpa in S. Vito d'Altivole, the radical architectural concept of which links it to the world of Gerald Zugmann.
