Publisher Comments:

Die Schweiz präsentierte sich auf der EXPO 2000 in Hannover mit einer ungewöhnlichen Holzstruktur des Architekten Peter Zumthor. Dieser »Klangkörper Schweiz« beherbergte keine Ausstellung im herkömmlichen Sinne: der Pavillon selbst war das Ereignis. Architektur, Musik, Wort, Modedesign und Gastronomie verbanden sich zu einem Ort der Entspannung, des Genießens und Entdeckens. Da es im Schweizer Pavillon keine Erklärungen oder Verweise gab, wurde für die Gäste dieses Begleitbuch entwickelt. Es gibt Auskunft über nahezu alle Fragen, die sich dem Besucher des Pavillons stellen können, und wirkt so als Bindeglied zwischen dem unmittelbaren »Erlebnis Klangkörper« und der Realität jenseits des Pavillons. Durch die alphabetisch geordneten Stichworte erhält das Buch einen gezielt lexikalischen Charakter aber auch einen eigenständigen Wert: Es entwickelt sich zu einem außergewöhnlichen »Vademecum der Schweiz«, das einen aktuellen Querschnitt durch die Schweizer Kultur präsentiert.

Synopsis:

Peter Zumthor was selected to construct the Swiss Pavilion at the EXPO2000 in Hanover, and to this end, he created an unusual wood structure, the "Soundbodies" of Switzerland. Swiss architecture, music, the written word, fashion design and gastronomy are all drawn together to create a place to discover, to enjoy and to relax in. Soundbodybook is intended to accompany the visitor around Peter Zumthor's pavilion. It provides answers to virtually all the questions visitors might like to ask, and is the link between the experience of the "Soundbodies" and the physical presence of the pavilion.
