Like Zumthor usually says, every single building has a sound, without knowing exactly why. This is the sound of the empty space, of the materials without friction of people, the breathing of the elements. Everything has a sound, made of its present reality and its future.
Zumthor is all about order, and his sound comes from the empty and lonely building. He likes the building without friction, just the materials and the wind. With Lacaton & Vassal comes the people, even the noise. Altogether, noise and order, a beautiful sound is created, the sound of the order.
