Kolumba Museum

Peter Zumthor

Koln, Germany


Merging seamlessly with the ruins upon which it stands this building sublimely modulates light and air with the same skill it brings to the steel, brick and stone of its construction.


The solemn spaces revealed by the new parts of the building echo with the kind of sound we imagine existed in the original Romanesque church before it was destroyed by bombing. Reflective materials form reverberant spaces which almost universally elicit silence from visitors.
