♥ Favourite Architect ♥

What is considered as a luxury in architecture nowadays – time to build and quality of materials…

That is why I do admire Zumthor’s work as it is thorough in use of materials, lots of time is given for the concept extensive exploration and it creates rich atmospheric experiences. His personal style and approach is easily read through his sketches and drawings where with a few lines he summaries the narrative to such a great detail. His Zen approach to architecture he focuses on the true value for the user and underlines the essence of the individual experience which is not driven by any previously perceived idea. I do admire his humble approach to design as oppose to any other ‘star architects’ who would try and imply an ideology and a particular manifesto.
