Memories like these contain the deepest architectural experience that I know - Peter Zumthor. Buildings that have a strong impact always convey an intense feeling of their spatial quality. They embrace the mysterious void called space in a special way and make it vibrate - Peter Zumthor. Peter Zumthor's Thinking Architecture is a quiet, unassuming book, just as Peter's architecture, a collection of well-grounded, serene and sophisticated statements of tectonic realness emanating from the imprints of memories on his decalogue of intuitions.

The writer, secluded in the Swiss mountains, is a sensible narrator with great vigor of mind unencumbered by modern life, yearning for the real whether it is in nature, sculpture or literature. A humanist with a gift for a detailed recollection of mental images that are now used as inspiration. Similarly troubled and invigorated by the constant memories of the past, Thinking architecture is a melancholic tale of the sensual impressions of materials, observations on personal experiences and the acultural appreciation of commonplace details.

Within his own search of beauty and spatial quality, construction seems to resonate best with his impressions of the world. Construction is the art of making a meaningful whole out of many parts - Peter Zumthor. Architecture is always concrete matter. Architecture is no abstract, but concrete - Peter Zumthor. Perhaps Zumthor cannot explain his motives other than by memories and personal moving moments. An ineffable sentimentality that always accompanied him, whether it is in wood-working as a teenager or as a world-famous architect in late adulthood.

As long as I can remember, I have always experienced the beauty of an artifact, an object created by man as a special presence of form, as a self-evident and self-confident hereness that is intrinsic to the object - Peter Zumthor.

I felt good working on this cupboard. Making the precisely fitting joints and exact shapes to form a whole, a complete object that corresponded to my inner vision, triggered in me a state of intense concentration, and the finished piece of furniture added a freshness to my environment - Peter Zumthor. In a society that celebrates the inessential, architecture can put up a resistance, counteract the waste of forms and meanings, and speak its own language - Peter Zumthor.

Preconceived images and stylistically prefabricated formal idioms are qualified only to block access to real things - Peter Zumthor. Without a complete refutation of neither tradition nor modernity, perhaps Zumthor is trying to find resonance in the in-between. This fragile 92 page book, first published in , is a momentary view into the workings of the mind of a Pritzker prize laureate, and that is not even its main contribution, its main contribution is learning the personal, unique and touching sensibility from a master of his craft.

When an architectural design draws solely from tradition and only repeats the dictates of its site, I sense a lack of a genuine concern with the world and the emanations of contemporary life.

If a work of architecture speaks only of contemporary trends and sophisticated visions without triggering vibrations in its place, this work is not anchored in its site and I miss the specific gravity of the ground it stands on - Peter Zumthor.

Thinking Architecture

In order to design a building with a sensuous connection to life, one must think in a way that goes far beyond form and construction. In these essays Peter Zumthor expresses his motivation in designing buildings, which speak to our emotions and understanding in so many ways, and possess a powerful and unmistakable presence and personality. This book, whose first edition has been out of print for years, has been expanded to include three new essays: "Does Beauty Have a Form? Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
