Peter Zumther is an architect who cultivates singularity and retreat and mistrusts any kind of excessively theoretical stance instead he prefers to remain firmly nanchored to the reality of things around us and keenly alive to the sensations they stir. He believes that there are no ideas except in things. The meticulous attention Zumther pays to materials and to their visual, tactile and even olfactory attributes. He applies materials with the sophisticated precision and he pursues the skills and techniques of construction. Each of Zumthor’s works always responds to extraordinary architectural demands.:  Peter Zumther is an architect who cultivates singularity and retreat and mistrusts any kind of excessively theoretical stance instead he prefers to remain firmly nanchored to the reality of things around us and keenly alive to the sensations they stir.

Summery:  Summery Out of the eastern flank of the basin-shaped valley of Vals, a good 1200 meters above sea level rises a spring. The site next to the spring was once occupied by a modest spa hotel dating from 1893.The hotel had a number of finely appointed bathing cabins and shower rooms, and from around 1930, its clientele dwindled. It was replaced by a new spa built in1960. The 1960s spa is simply built.In 1996, this second spa has in turn become obsolete and was replaced by the mew thermal bath at the end of 1996. The new thermal baths is an independent structure set into the sloping southwest corner of the existing hotel. Access is via a subterranean passage leading from the hotel. The whole structure was built with local stone in Vals. The facility of the Baths including indoor pool, outdoor pool, rest space, changing room , space for the disabled and several baths with various functions can meet demands of different people. :  Out of the eastern flank of the basin-shaped valley of Vals, a good 1200 meters above sea level rises a spring.

The building takes the form of a large, grass-covered stone object set deep into the mountain and dovetailed into its flank. It was designed to follow the role: the establishing of a special relationship with the mountain landscape, its natural power, geological substance and impressive topograghy. It tries to make us believe that it is always standing there and seems to be the part of the landscape. It is probably profoundly archaic heritage. . :  The thermal bath is an independent structure.

For a moment, I had the feeling that our project had escaped us and become independent because it had evolved into a material entity that obeyed its own laws.” :  “I had not expected this concurrent hardness and softness , this smooth yet rugged quality , this iridescent gray-green presence emanating from the square tome blocks.
