The Goetheanum is located atop a hill in Dornach, near Basel. It was built between 1925 and 1928 according to a model made by Rudolf Steiner. It was the first time a structure of that size incorporating sculptural forms was built out of reinforced concrete. This avant-garde building was one of the first examples of organic architecture.
The Goetheanum is the point of convergence for the General Anthroposophical Society. It is also the centre for the School of Spiritual Science, whose task is to undertake spiritual research and apply its results to life situations while at the same time providing a forum for the exchange of ideas.
