This book I have read about four times. It is very clever, very personal, and short. Zumthor’s description of his process is inspirational not because it is so revolutionary but rather because it is uncompromising. You can tell he is on a continuous journey of understanding himself in the context of the world around us, and he has a mission that must be delivered. I have great respect for that, and for this book.
