The Glass House of Rudolf Steiner

The Glass House (das Glashaus) was built to house the studio where the windows of the first Goetheanum (1913-1920) were cut. It is constructed totally of wood, like the first Goetheanum. Of all the buildings, its character reminds one most strongly of the first Goetheanum with its two domes, destroyed in 1922 by fire. The second Goetheanum was built in 1928, but out of concrete. There are several other buildings near the Goetheanum, some of them also developed by Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925). They form a harmonious unity with the main building. The architecture tour offers a complete picture of this unique complex. Further information is available on www.architekturpfad.ch. (Source: www.goetheanum.org).
