Architect Peter Zumthor lives and works in the remote village of Haldenstein in the Swiss Kanton of Graubunden and enjoys the status of world class architect for his unique modernist buildings. Critic Kenneth Frampton questioned him during a tour of his pioneering earlier works, such as the Spa in Vals (for which he received much early recognition) and the recently acclaimed Kolumba, the museum of the archdiocese of Cologne, Germany.
