About Thinking Architecture, 2nd Edition

Product Description "In order to design buildings with a sensuous connection to life, one must think in a way that goes far beyond form and construction." So writes Peter Zumthor in Thinking Architecture, his seminal 1998 publication that quickly sold out and has been unavailable for years. This new edition includes three new essays: "Does Beauty Have a Form?," "The Magic of the Real," and "Light in the Landscape." Not only has the book been redesigned by noted typographer Hannele Gr nlund, it has also been illustrated throughout with color photographs by Laura Padgett of Zumthor's new home and studio in Haldenstein, taken especially for this edition. In Thinking Architecture, Zumthor expresses his motivation in designing buildings that speak to our feelings and understanding in so many ways and that possess a powerful and unmistakable presence and personality. About the Author Peter Zumthor, *1943, gehört international zu den renommiertesten Schweizer Architekten. In Haldenstein bei Chur führt er eine kleine Architekturmanufaktur mit wenigen Mitarbeitern. Sein Bestreben ist es, Architektur sinnlich erlebbar zu machen. Zu seinen bekanntesten Bauten zählen u.a: Therme Vals, 1996; Kunsthaus Bregenz, 1997; Kunstmuseum Kolumba, Köln 2007.
