Stein und Wasser
The first written references of the thermal springs being used date back to the 17th century. "It is a light, clear water, soft, as if one has touched lukewarm water mixed with fine soap, with a very bland, barely perceptible, salty taste, its fixed components are primarily a fine clay and limestone." – The soothing deep power of water.
"Mountain, stone, water – building in the stone, building with stone, into the mountain, building out of the mountain, being inside the mountain – how can the implications and the sensuality in the association of these words be interpreted, architecturally?
The whole concept was designed by following up these questions; so that it all took form step by step." (Peter Zumthor)
