Peter Zumthor recipient of the 2009 prestigeous Pritzker Prize is known for innovative minimalist designs. His projects inspire enthusiasm with their exactitude, their poetry, and their radically independent aesthetics and vocabulary of form. This publication, exquisitely designed to the architect's exacting standards, was the first complete survey of Zumthor's oeuvre open it's release in 1998. As exceptional as the architect's work itself, the book investigates eight realized buildings in detail, including the Home for the Elderly in Chur, the Gugalun House in Safiental, the Art Museum in Bregenz, Austria, and his best-known work, the Thermal Baths in Vals, Switzerland. Each of these projects is extensively illustrated with duotone photographs by British architectural photographer Helene Binet and is accompanied by plans as well as commentary written, by Zumthor himself.
