To create a sensuous architecture connected to life calls for a way of thinking that goes far beyond the conventional precepts of form and construction. In these inspirational essays Peter Zumthor, winner of the 2009 Pritzker Prize for architecture, articulates what moves and motivates him to design buildings that possess a compelling and unmistakable presence and which speak to the visitor´s heart and mind on so many levels. With over 30,000 copies already sold, and now in its third edition, Thinking Architecture has been expanded to include two new essays: "Architecture and Landscape" deals with the relationship between the structure and its surroundings, and the secret of the successful placement and topographical integration of architecture; in "The Leis Houses" Peter Zumthor examines the challenge of integrating contemporary architecture into a traditional context, describing the genesis of two wooden houses in the town of Leis in the Swiss canton of Graubünden. Thinking Architecture also includes 4 new atmospheric photos of Zumthor´s home and studio, taken especially for this edition.
