Euromaxx meets up with architect Peter Zumthor in his native Switzerland and show some of his most impressive works.
His award-winning designs include the Therme in Vals, the Kunsthaus Bregenz and the Kolumba art museum in Cologne. Peter Zumthor is the first foreign architect to be honored by the Association of German Architects.
This year, the world's most prestigious architecture award will go to RCR Arquitectes. The three architects from Catalonia use modern materials and incorporate landscapes into their constructions.
Peter Zumthor doesn’t think much of trends in architecture. His buildings are purist temples of light and silence. In 2013, he was awarded the coveted Pritzker Prize in 2013. We pay him a visit in Switzerland.
In 2017, architecture's top award, the Pritzker Prize, goes for the first time to a trio without a big name - RCR from Catalonia. A look at their radical, emotional and local buildings.
