Born in Basel, Peter Zumthor was exposed to design at an early age, becoming an apprentice for a carpenter in 1958. Then, he studied industrial design and architecture in New York and worked on historic restoration projects that gave him a further understanding of construction and the qualities of different rustic building materials.

As his experience and expertise developed, Zumthor was able to incorporate his knowledge of materials into Modernist construction and detailing. His buildings explore the tactile and sensory qualities of spaces and materials while retaining a minimalist feel. It was in 1979 that the architect decided to invest in himself, founding his own firm in 1979, accepting international projects immediately.
