Item description for Peter Zumthor by Eckhard Schneider Peter Zumthor...

The glass panels that cover the main building of Austria's renowned Kunsthaus Bregenz look almost like "lightly ruffled feathers" according to the museum's designer, Swiss architect Peter Zumthor. During the day, the building creates the impression of a semi-transparent glass body, while at night it becomes a 100-foot tall, luminescent cube--a highly visible statement in light. Situated on the shores of Lake Constance, the Kunsthaus creates a focal point for the region, "a centre for Bregenz where once there was an inner-city wasteland," according to esteemed Austrian architecture critic Friedrich Achleitner. Originally published in 1999 and long out of print, this volume presents Zumthor's spectacular project for the Kunsthaus Bregenz.
Based in Haldenstein, Switzerland, Peter Zumthor has taught at Southern California Institute of Architecture in Los Angeles and the Harvard Graduate School of Design.
