TRAVEL

The Vals Thermal Spa put Swiss architect Peter Zumthor on the map in 1996, and for good reason. When the town of Vals, a canton of Graub√ľnden, Switzerland, hired Peter Zumthor to design their thermal baths, he was an undiscovered talent. He soon achieved cult status (he won the Pritzker Prize in 2009) and the thermal baths became a mecca for architects around the world.
