    Peter Zumthor PDF ì Hardcover peter kindle, zumthor ebok, Peter Zumthor PDFEPUBOut with the old in with the newNow that the 2014 five volume collection featuring selections from Zumthor’s oeuvre has been published is this book still worth referencingAbsolutelyAlthough the date range of the first two volumes roughly coincides with the date range of this book they aren't a reprint As I mentioned in my review of the new collection the two publications are similar in spirit but there are some differences The length of the sections devoted to each entry is generally shorter in the new books meaning that a large number of photos aren't included in the 2014 collection This is doubly true because the layout of the new collection is slightly open when buildings are covered and much open when projects are covered After carefully comparing the two publications I've come to the conclusion that probably 50% of the material in this book isn't included in the new collectionProjects that aren't in the 2014 books include the Community Center Landuart
