For Studio class we are required to construct a model of a built work. I chose Peter Zumthor's Kunsthaus Bregenz in Austria.

Zumthor typically creates seemingly minimalist projects that, when dissected reveal a greater complexity.

The Kunsthaus is basically a rectangle standing on its small side, but the glass panes that make the shell surrounding the building create a scale-like pattern. Light filters through these semi-transparent panes in a space between the ceiling and concrete floor of the storey above. Really amazing building.

Brian, I just found your blog and had no idea you were doing architecture. That's cool. Now you and Mike Brady have more in common than just a curly 70's fro.
