Royal Gold Medal 2013 Lecture - Peter Zumthor

Architecture: Royal Gold Medal 2013 Lecture: Peter Zumthor: “..It’s a rarity that the architecture community is presented a chance to indulge in a Peter Zumthor lecture. Often referred to a architecture’s reclusive “man of mystery”, the Swiss legend has produced a handful of projects so eloquently designed that they have captured the attention of the world. In honor of his mastery, RIBA awarded Zumthor with the institute’s prestigious Royal Gold Medal in February. In this video, he gives the 2013 Royal Gold Medal Lecture at the RIBA, focused on the theme of Presence in Architecture..”

Jonathan Glancey has written a short, interesting article entitled “Peter Zumthor unveils secret garden for Serpentine pavilion” in the Art & Design section of the Guardian, looking at Pritzker Prize architect Peter Zumthor’s design for the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion, a contemplative garden created by the Dutch designer Piet Oudolf, enclosed by a minimalist timber structure wrapped with a scrim and coated with black paste mixed with sand.  The eleventh of its kind, precedent pavilions have been designed by, among others, Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, Daniel Liebeskind, and in 2010, by Jean Nouvel.  A review of the the designs, beginning in 2000, can be seen in Rowan Moore’s article entitled “Ten years of the Serpentine’s star pavilions” once again in the Art & Design section of the Guardian.
