Discussion Steiner Seminary Commentary

"The most intriguing feature of the Rudolf Steiner Seminary Culture House is its form. The external walls curve gently, and the roofs reach out to join the walls' curvilinear paths. At the southwest corner, the roof and the walls join in an upward ascendance to meet a rising chimney. The structure embodies Steiner's view that the form of a building must derive from the nature of the activities inside.

"The building is an assemblage of masses with each mass defining a separate function or space. The largest mass is the auditorium, establishing its functional importance within the building."

— Raj Jahdav, ArchitectureWeek No. 277, pC1.1.
