Atmospheres: Architectural Environments, Surrounding Objects
Birkhäuser, 2006 - 75 σελίδες
What "really constitutes an architectural atmosphere"? Peter Zumthor says, is "this singular density and mood, this feeling of presence, well-being, harmony, beauty ... under whose spell I experience what I otherwise would not experience in precisely this way." Zumthor's passion is the creation of buildings that produce this kind of effect, but how can one actually set out to achieve it? In nine short, illustrated chapters framed as a process of self-observation, Peter Zumthor describes what he has on his mind as he sets about creating the atmosphere of his houses. Images of spaces and buildings that affect him are every bit as important as particular pieces of music or books that inspire him. From the composition and "presence" of the materials to the handling of proportions and the effect of light, this poetics of architecture enables the reader to recapitulate what really matters in the process of house design.

Ouality architecture to me is when a building manages to move me. What on
earth is it that moves me? How can I get it into my own work? How could design
something like the room in that photograph – one of my favourite icons, a building
So what moved me? Everything. The things themselves, the people, the air,
noises, sound, Colours, material presences, textures, forms too – forms | Can
appreciate. Forms | Can try to decipher. Forms find beautiful. What else moved
... move me, then I'll go back to the beginning and start again. So you could say
my very final chapter heading, my final aim, probably is. (The Beautiful Form).
