Brief Review of the publication:

“The style of Peter Zumthor’s work has some affinities with what is often called Swiss minimalism. Zumthor believes “the language of architecture is not a question of a specific style. Every building is built for a specific use in a specific place for a specific society. My buildings try to answer the questions that emerge from these simple facts as precisely and critically as they can'”.

Weltpostpark residential buildings Bern
The last apartments in the SSA Architekten-designed Weltpostpark development are now occupied. The striking six-storey residential buildings have an urban feel about them, while the park-like surroundings and the varied clinker brick facades create a homely atmosphere.
