The Goetheanum is an institution founded by Herr Rudolf Steiner focussed on Anthrosophy. It is situated on the hills outside Dornach, south-southeast of Basel.  The general architectural style lends from the Art Nouveau style.  The building style avoid right angles as they are rarely found in nature. Anthrosophy embraces study of spiritual science, eurhythmy and nature.

Goetheanum in winter (February 2001).

The main building has a massive mausoleum feel to the architecture, although the style is meant to represent natural shapes, such as trees growing up out of the earth (as evoked by the upsweep of the walls into the eaves of the roof).

Built 1925 - 1928.

Not too many smiles here?

 

The actual reason is that when you had to pose for 30 seconds exposure you couldn't smile that long.
