Peter Zumthor, with
Helene Binet, Maureen Oberli-Turner, Pamela Johnston, Catherine Schelbert
1999, Birkhauser Verlag AG, 64 pp, hardcover
“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'”.
