«Thinking architecture» (2006) by Peter Zumthor is a book consisting of eight lectures. In them, Peter Zumthor contemplates the conditions for creating architecture. He attempts to define what aspects of a building speak to him and what he experiences when he enters a space.

The basis for the piece «ein Gebäude sein – être un bâtiment» (being a building) is text excerpts from this book, which are interpreted by Hélène Cattin and Anna Hohler in the form of a monologue.

Cie un tour de Suisse was established by Hélène Cattin and Anna Hohler. Their projects are not intended for performance on traditional stages. What interests them is theater in real living environments. «ein Gebäude sein – être un bâtiment» is the first piece by the group. Performance venues up to now: La Datcha in Lausanne, the Zentral- und Hochschulbibliothek Lucerne, and the Salzmagazin in the Nidwalder Museum, Stans. There will be another perfomance at Kunsthaus Bregenz on November 30, 2012, starting at 8 p.m.
