Notes from a Day in the Life of an Architect

Peter Zumthor at Work

Peter Zumthor is an architect admired throughout the world, and one whose uncompromising approach to his work leads him to reject the trappings of star architecture. German filmmaker Wim Wenders meets the architect at work in his small studio in the village of Haldenstein, Switzerland. Wenders’ film seeks to bring to light the combination of poetry, practicality and radical simplicity behind Zumthor’s work.
