WITTGENSTEIN Philosophy in the Three-dimensional Space
and its accompanying "philosophy" have alway seemed as practically inseparable
players in the struggle for forms of appearance of architectural structures.
Thus many a bizarre creation is legitimized by
such a "philosophy".
Every now and then the philosophy apparently remaining in the background
becomes predominant and makes pragmatic considerations fall behind by and
large. Rudolf Steiner created the Goetheanum in Dornach as a manifestation
as it were of his world's view. Ludwig Wittgenstein left
was to become the House Wittgenstein lateron. Philosophers sometimes work
as architects. The actual usefulness and the effective impact of such buildings
will surely also occupy generations of
A 3D-model of
the House Wittgenstein to be co-produced served as the starting point for
initializing work acting as the basic material for further operations.
The virtual house thus was transported from its used
the anonymous "unspecific" space of the computer no longer being subjected
to the prevailing conditions according to laws of natural science. It thus
had totally become the three-dimensional formulation of philosophical ideation.
Thus architecture turns in to "theory", walls do not provide thickness
for support of upper layers; the structuring function of supporting elements
is considered and not its supporting behavior. This represents an attempt
of reinterpreting manifestations subjected to
over the years.
