Book Description

28 July 1999
The style of Peter Zumthor's work has some affinities with what is often called Swiss minimalism. Zumthor believes "the language of architecture is not a question of a specific style. Every building is built for a specific use in a specific place for a specific society. My buildings try to answer the questions that emerge from these simple facts as precisely and critically as they can."

Format:Hardcover
This is a very handsome book of mainly black and white photos of the Swiss modernist's work. There are some small color photos but I would have preferred to have seen more. The Architectural Review did a recent spread on the Baths and the blue of the stone used was very evocative. Still this is a beautiful book on a very impressive architect.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Jewel of a Book 6 Mar 2006
By G.B. Piranesi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Because the Swiss architect has such a loyal following among architects around the world, and because Zumthor refuses to allow his books go into extra printings, this jewel of a book documenting a half dozen of Zumthor's project is much coveted by collectors. The photographs are sumptuously lit, and beautifully printed.
