While this is currently the definitive reference regarding Zumthor's body of work, it is not the definitive reference for several of the projects. If you are researching a specific Zumthor project that has been published elsewhere, don't expect this collection to be your only source of information. For example, say you're researching the Swiss Sound Box. The best sources of information for that project are SWISS SOUND BOX, STRUCTURE AS SPACE, and A+U no.360. WORKS contains drawings that were composed before building commenced. This set has some of the drawings and some color photographs. Even researching buildings like Steilneset, which have several pages devoted to them here, will require obtaining a copy of A+U no.495 and STEILNESET MINNESTED : TIL MINNE OM DE TROLLDOMSDØMTE I FINNMARK. The 1998 A+U EXTRA EDITION still contains the most comprehensive coverage of many of the older buildings. It's also worth noting that WORKS has a fair amount of content that was not included in this set, such as photographs and coverage of certain projects.
Most of the writings in the monograph were Mr. Zumthor’s own words to describe the background, inspiration and process for each of his project. The words are minimal and truthful to his intentions, altogether with many unintended phenomenons left us in awestruck with profoundness of his architecture.
Instead the volumes arrive in a cheap cardboard holder that is certainly recyclable, but nothing more than a disposable container.
it illustrates in the most beautiful way the projects of his career and his unbelievable attention to detail and the joining of materials. The models, watercolors and photographs artistically complement the architectural darwings . I would buy this again and gladly. I will spend many hours going over these buildings with great pleasure.
When I started reading through the set, I was highly disappointed with the content, as a large portion of the photos are actually the exact same ones you can find on the internet. The essays by Zumthor are fantastic as usual, and there are some new pictures of his sketches and some models, but overall, I was hoping to see a lot more. I wasn't looking for a coffee table style book with lots of pretty pictures, but was just hoping that with the guidance of Zumthor, I would see some new imagery that would help engage the reader into how this amazing Architect designs.
