Peter Zumthor

Mark Fisher has asked me about the work of Peter Zumthor in my Comments section.   The work which most museum people know – and which is what presumably attracted Michael Govan and the Trustees of LACMA (and Alain de Botton) – is the Kolumba Museum in Cologne which is the most beautiful, thoughtful and uplifting set of museum interiors anywhere in the world, designed to house the collection of the Archdiocese of Cologne.   The interesting thing for LACMA is that it is an architecture which depends on an incredible level of control of the environment and a mood of spiritual meditation, which will be difficult to achieve on Wilshire Boulevard.   But brave.
