In 1926 philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein designed and built a house in Vienna for his sister. The only building designed by Wittgenstein, it crystallized his philosophy of architecture – notable for its clarity, precision, and austerity – and served as a foil for his written work. This book presents a detailed investigation of the house, based on 30 years of extensive research. It examines the formal properties of the structure, including Wittgenstein’s attention to proportion, detail, and colour.

Condition: Very good with some marks to cover
