Peter Zumthor – The Thermal Bath at Vals

Lecture date: 1996-02-15

In common with Peter Zumthor’s other projects in recent years the Thermal Bath built in the mountain village of Vals is a building in which the materials used have had a significant impact on the interpretation of the brief. From the projects inception, Zumthor allowed what he saw as the mystical qualities of the stone and the elemental character of the surrounding region to influence hiss creation of an environment in which to observe the ritual of bathing.
