Vals Thermal Baths
Atelier Peter Zumthor
Vals, Switzerland

Praised as one of the best completed works by 2009 Pritzker Laureate Peter Zumthor, the Vals Thermal Baths might be one of the most iconic buildings in Swiss contemporary architecture. Already in 1998, just two years after its opening, it became a national monument. The building definitely rewards its visitors with the rare pleasure of experiencing a genuine example of timeless architecture.

Shelters for Roman Archaeological Site
Atelier Peter Zumthor
Chur, Switzerland

One of the first big projects for the 2009 Pritzker Prize-winning architect Peter Zumthor was this protective pavilion built to cover the remains of two Roman buildings. Built in 1985-86 and located in the capital of the Swiss canton of Graubünden, arcspace had the opportunity to revisit and photograph the site this summer. It’s astonishing to think it was designed and built almost thirty years ago. Not only does it still stand in perfect condition but it looks like it was conceived just yesterday.

Kolumba Museum
Atelier Peter Zumthor
Cologne, Germany

Built on the ruins of the Gothic Church of St. Columba in the old center of Cologne, not far from the city’s spectacular cathedral, revered Swiss architect Peter Zumthor’s Kolumba Museum stands as an equally uplifting and melancholic testament to the glorious and the bleak chapters of the city’s past.
