  • this is an experience, an experience of the artist, Binet, and her exploration of Zumthor’s work. I think these images are mind blowing, a very interesting composition to allow perhaps a new point of view other than what one may first see on their own.

  • helene binet’s photographs do zumthor no real justice. and didn’t zumthor himself say that to experience the buildings, you have to go there yourself?
