WINNER OF THE DAM ARCHITECTURAL BOOK AWARD 2014

The book PETER ZUMTHOR 1985-2013. Buildings and Projects
is the long-awaited grand monograph of Peter Zumthor, published in five hardcover volumes in a slipcase.


Unquestionably one of the most influential and revered contemporary architects and Pritzker laureate 2009, Peter Zumthor has approached his work with a singular clarity of vision and a strong sense of his own philosophy, both of which have earned him the admiration of his peers and the world at large. Choosing to only take on a few projects at a time and keep his studio small, Zumthor has produced a comparatively small number of realized buildings, but they rank among the world’s most stunning: St. Benedict’s Chapel in Sumvitg, Switzerland; Therme Vals in Vals, Switzerland; Kunsthaus Bregenz in Bregenz, Austria; and the Kolumba Art Museum in Cologne, Germany, number among his most famous designs. This collection, however, explores his entire body of award-winning work from 1985 to 2013 in five volumes, including his lesser-known but nonetheless critically acclaimed works, such as the Field Chapel for Brother Klaus near Mechernich, Germany, and the Steilneset Memorial to the Victims of the Witch Trials in Vardø, Norway.

This new monograph presents around forty of Peter Zumthor’s projects, both realized and unrealized, through Zumthor’s own writing, along with photographs, sketches, drawings, and plans. A complete catalog of his works starting in 1975 rounds out the book. Richly illustrated and beautifully designed, this book serves as both an introduction to Zumthor’s work and philosophy for the layperson and a required addition to any architect’s library.
