Peter Zumthor, 2009 Pritzker laureate, is one of the best known architects of the present day. Widely admired for his precision and thoroughness, he creates buildings that are responsive to their location and function, and that are remarkable both for their materials and the atmospheric quality of the spaces they enclose.

This five-volume overview of his work to date presents forty-three buildings and projects, including some that have never been published before. On 856 pages with over 750 photographs, plans, sketches, drawings and watercolors, and with texts written by Peter Zumthor himself specially for this monograph, it documents a wide range of projects from several world-famous buildings to some that never left the drawing board.

With photographs by Hélène Binet, Hans Danuser, Ralph Feiner, Thomas Flechtner, Walter Mair, Joël Tettamanti, and others.

Thomas Durisch, born 1963 in Minneapolis, grew up in Binningen near Basel. He graduated in architecture from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, ETH Zurich, in 1990 and  worked at Atelier Peter Zumthor 1990–94. In 1995 he established his own studio in Zürich. He has been curator of the exhibitions “Peter Zumthor – Buildings and Projects 1986–2007” at Kunsthaus Bregenz (2007) and the LX Factory Lisbon (2008), and “Architectural Models Peter Zumthor” at Kunsthaus Bregenz (2012–2014).

Peter Zumthor,  born 1943, grew up in Oberwil near Basel. Following an apprenticeship as cabinetmaker he studied interior design, design and architecture at the School of Applied Arts in Basel and the Pratt Institute in New York. He worked at the office for the preservation of of historical sites and buildings of the Swiss Canton of Grisons in Chur for ten years before establishing his own architectural office in Haldenstein, Switzerland, in 1978. He has been a professor at the Università della Svizzera italiana's Academy of Architecture in Mendrisio 1996–2008 and also held visiting professorships at several international universities, including the Harvard Graduate School of Design.

Peter Zumthor has received numerous prizes, including the world’s most prestigious architectural awards: Mies van der Rohe Award for European Architecture (1998), Japan's Praemium Imperiale (2008), Pritzker Architecture Prize (2009), and the Royal Institute of British Architects' Royal Gold Medal (2012). In 2009 he was made a Foreign Honorary Member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
