With this new project Christoph Schaub expands his field beyond the seeing and explaining of buildings to deal with a very specific aspect of the effects of space - which is transcendence. He guides the viewer through created spaces, art, music and nature, where transcendence can be felt and experienced.

With: Peter Zumthor, Peter Märkli, Álvaro Siza Vieira, Jojo Mayer, James Turrell and Cristina Iglesias.
