Peter Zumthor: Kunsthaus Bregenz

Texts by Friedrich Achleitner and Peter Zumthor. Hatje Stuttgart, 1997. 108pp. £12.95

Here is an almost pocket-size monograph on Zumthor's most recently completed work. Helene Binet again provides the photographs, which are well reproduced in both colour and black-and-white. Some detail drawings are included along with the plans and sections. Zumthor's account of the Kunsthaus, published also in Peter Zumthor Works (see opposite page), first appeared here. Achleitner supplies a succinct analysis of the building, and also comments on its success in urban terms in reconfiguring a fallow area of Bregenz. This is an informative, attractive record of the Kunsthaus at a modest price. (Distributor Art Books International expects the book to be more readily available in a few weeks' time. Details 0171 720 1503.)
