The Goetheanum in Dornach (Switzerland) was built from 1925 to 1928 in reinforced concrete and was the first monumental building to be constructed from this material in sculptural forms. The building is based on a style of architecture in which every part, every form, every color is internally connected to the whole and the whole is divided into the individual through metamorphoses. This style of architecture is called Organic Architecture.
Organic Architecture is the term used to describe an architectural movement that developed after World War I alongside other avant-garde movements that countered historicism and helped shape the architectural phase of Modernism.
The Goetheanum was designed by Rudolf Steiner and is now a large conference center as well as a venue for theater and eurythmy. Every year thousands of people from all continents come to visit and enjoy the shapes and colors of the Organic Architecture.
