289 ratings | 36623 views
Peter Zumthor, internationally acclaimed Swiss architect, gives a rare interview in which he reveals his thoughts on imagined buildings, dreams and architectural time. Including footage of his Thermal Baths, Vals and Saint Benedict's Chapel, Sumtvitg, Zumthor responds to the depiction of the stable in Ercole de' Roberti's 'Nativity', about 1490, by declaring "a good building should have a soul." This film is one of five giving contemporary perspectives on the National Gallery exhibition 'Building the Picture: Architecture in Italian Renaissance Painting' (30 April - 21 September 2014).

The conviction with which he says ' a good building should have a soul' is truly intense. I love his works.

Yeah I´ve read that book that you mencioned and "Thinking the Architecture". I feel more prepared about this world (architecture) that only a few persons can understand. Peter Zumthor was one of the first architects that I´ve known but then i realized that there are a lot of important arquitects maybe over Zumthor. The point is that I want to see more videos about architecture on youtube to know more about architecture.
