RIBA Journal exclusive cut: Tony Chapman of the RIBA went to Switzerland to interview Peter Zumthor on his home turf on craft, clients, Stonehenge in Devon and conversation versus trust. The architect Peter Zumthor lives and works in the remote village of Haldenstein in the Swiss Kanton of Graubünden. Here, keeping the politics of architecture at a comfortable distance, Zumthor enjoys the status of “world-class” architect for his unique modernist buildings. They can be found in many parts of Europe, soon to be followed by a public building in Los Angeles, where he is in charge of a new master plan for LACMA. Visiting him in his studio, where he would be surrounded by drawings and marquettes turned out to be a good idea.
