Inside the Goetheanum



A while back I promised a look inside the Rudolf Steiner's Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland. It's hard to know what to expect when you see the outside form of this massive structure.... but once you push open the heavy doors, it's like walking into another world.

Here's a peek at the ground floor, minus the cafe, book/art stores, and bathrooms. The bathrooms were pretty nice, too. There seemed to be art exhibitions at every turn, including two huge lazured murals. This is but a glimpse, and the pictures hardly do it justice, but I think you'll get the idea.

  4. I really like the look of those windows. I wish we could have seen them when we went, but that staircase was very cool.
    I was surprised at how echo-y it all was.

  5. Those windows pieces were part of an art exhibit, and they weren't there last time I checked. I think the last four shots in this post are from exhibits.... but yes, I love that staircase. I'm so glad we were able to go when you were here!
