Peter Zumthor Ermal Bath Vals Graubünden, Switzerland the authorities opted for the thermal baths as a ﬁrst step. In 1991 the project was presented at a village meeting with a water-ﬁlled stone model. Construction started in 1994, and the thermal baths were opened in 1996. The load-bearing composite structure of the baths consists of solid walls of concrete and thin slabs of Vals gneiss broken and cut to size in the quarry just behind the village. The thermal water has a temp of 30°C.
