Bruder Klaus Field Chapel by Peter Zumthor
Alexander Zaxarov
May 28, 2020

“In order to design buildings with a sensuous connection to life, one must think in a way that goes far beyond form and construction.”

This quote from Peter Zumthor rings true in his design of Bruder Klaus Field Chapel, where a mystical and thought-proving interior is masked by a very rigid rectangular exterior.

“To me, buildings can have a beautiful silence that I associate with attributes such as composure, self-evidence, durability, presence, and integrity, and with warmth and sensuousness as well; a building that is being itself, being a building, not representing anything, just being.” — Peter Zumthor
