Aesthetics and strength

By whom other than Peter Zumthor such an ascetic and highly aesthetic structure could be planned? The Kolumba Art Museum was built on the ruins of an old church and includes within itself a whole chapel – by Gottfried Böhm namely from the postwar period …. From outside a monolithic structure almost repellent allows the visitor to discover clear rooms and passageways at the inside of almost austere elegance. And who would have thought that the walls are plastered with clay?
