The first title in the Architectural Association series focusing on “Exemplary Projects,” this book features the work of Swiss architect, Peter Zumthor. It documents the making of a thermal bath in the alpine village of Vals. The design for the bath was guided by the ideas of building with stone, building into the mountain and being beside the mountain. The interior resembles a geometric cave system; walls are formed of layers of local stone; water-channels appear chiseled out of rock.
