ZUMTHOR. Spirit of Nature Wood Architecture Award 2006
'There is a special feel to living in a room of solid joined beams, a room not simply clad in wood but made of wood through and through', says Peter Zumthor, the fourth recipient of the international Spirit of Nature Wood Architecture Award. He explains in his interesting article 'The Body of Wood' his ideas of designing and constructing traditional log cabins. This book presents three projects by him: Haus Luzi , realised in 2002, and Haus Annalisa and Pension Briol which are still plans. These are featured with beautiful watercolour sketches, and models and plans, which give a good idea of the designing process.
