Living Architecture

Front Cover
SteinerBooks, 1994 - Architecture - 128 pages
Rudolf Steiner has given us a "biography of architecture"-- architecture as a living being from its birth at the beginning of history until today, and with indications for the future. We see it with its own rhythms and patterns as with a human life. In Steiner's cosmology, architecture has reached (in terms of a human lifespan) the age and energy of the early thirties--so it is a biography in progress.

Here is a concise, richly illustrated introduction to the architectural ideas of Rudolf Steiner. He was an early exponent of what has come to be called organic design in architecture, and this little volume clearly shows Steiner's influence on architects and designers around the world.
