The First Goetheanum

The existing building, a concrete structure was designed by Steiner in 1924. It replaced a wooden structure, usually called the first Goetheanum, which was erected in 1913 but destroyed by fire in 1922. Both buildings involved complicated structural innovations and when built, were way ahead of their time.

The interiors of both buildings also created stunning achievements in form and colour and attract visitors from all over the world (there are daily tours of the building). The auditorium was recently refurbished in 1998.

At the Goetheanum there are regular cycles of plays, eurythmy performances, lectures and conferences.
