As Peter Zumthor's Serpentine Pavilion is unveiled (1 July - 16 October), we take a further look at Zumthor's architecture through the eyes of Hélène Binet - the architect's photographer of choice.

Binet has photographed many of Zumthor's buildings over the last decade from the glass fronted Kunsthaus Bregenz in Austria to the juxtaposition of old and new architecture at Kolumba Art Museum in Cologne, Germany.

Having worked with architects such as Zaha Hadid, David Chipperfield and Le Corbusier as well as Zumthor, Binet's attention to light, shadow and detail has produced a powerful, abstract and emotional body of work.

Hélène Binet's photographs have been brought together in the extensive monograph, Composing Space, which is available to pre-order in the Phaidon Store now.
