Poetry & Concrete

Bruder Klaus Field Chapel, by Peter Zumthor - in Mechernich, Germany

“In order to design buildings with a sensuous connection to life, one must think in a way that goes far beyond form and construction.”  

“To me, buildings can have a beautiful silence that I associate with attributes such as composure, self-evidence, durability, presence, and integrity, and with warmth and sensuousness as well; a building that is being itself, being a building, not representing anything, just being.”

 Peter Zumthor
