Reviews

'A succinct introduction to the ideas of Rudolf Steiner. It includes sections on architecture through the ages and how Steiner's designs and writings were both affected by and drew from history. There is a detailed look at Steiner's major building projects including the famous research centre, which he both designed and founded, the Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland. The book is compact and readable, and comprehensive.'
-- Architecture & Surveying Institute Journal, 1994
