Every building deprives a portion of the earth of sun, wind and rain and probably plant and animal life as well. It must redeem this sacrifice by the healing quality of its architecture.
— Rudolf Steiner

Welcome to Architecture Steiner, a site where interested individuals, from professional designers to those pursuing design in its widest contexts, and those interested in spiritual aspects of life and creativity, can share ideas, present current work and exchange information.  It is a forum for dialogue and communication.

Are you interested in the world of design - particularly in architecture and the art of making places? 

Are you interested in the spiritual insights of Rudolf Steiner - to which he gave the name 'anthroposophy'?

If so, this site is aimed to be a catalyst for exploring ideas where these streams meet.  Steiner himself created some extraordinary buildings, and his work has encouraged many others to design in ways which recognise not only the humanity inherent in successful buildings, but also deeper spiritual aspects of life and place.

We are all too aware that, from the world itself right down to our own lives, there is a tendency towards fragmentation. As designers we want to explore with colleagues and in particular students how to design and create in the context of wholeness.  Our focus is on creating places, either internal or external, which are themselves a ‘whole’ and relate to and contribute to a greater ‘whole’.  We will do this with the wisdom given to us by Rudolf Steiner.
