Designed by world-renowned Swiss architect Peter Zumthor, the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2011 is the 11th in the Gallery's annual architecture series. This catalogue captures, in glorious photograph detail, Peter Zumthor's unique architectural design, carefully illustrating Zumthor's evocative play on scale, colour, material and light with the Pavilion's surroundings.
Peter Zumthor has stated that his design "aims to help its audience take the time to relax, to observe and then, perhaps, start to talk again - or maybe not." With a refined selection of materials he has created a contemplative space that evokes the spritual dimension of our physical environment, successfully emphasising the role the sense and emotions play in our experience or architecture.
With an essay by German filmmaker and writer Alexander Kluge, plant index and an exclusive text by Peter Zumthor.
