»It’s hard to say what makes more impact: the Kolumba museum’s vertiginous mix of ancient religious and modern secular artworks, or its astounding, vintage-2007 building by the Pritzker-winning Swiss architect Peter Zumthor. Shift your gaze from an oversize late-12th-century carved ivory crucifix to an untitled sculpture by the great Joseph Beuys, then take in the spires of the cathedral, artfully framed in a floor-to-ceiling window.« (36 Hours Cologne, 29 March 2012)
