so, my favorite living architect is peter zumthor, a swiss architect. my favorite architect from the past is le corbusier, also swiss. rudolf steiner, a philosopher/writer/architect created a kind of architecture based on his philosophy of anthroposophy that is of great interest to me and all of his buildings (15) were built in the town of Dornach, Switzerland.
anyway, switzerland is my personal architecture mecca.
i just received word that i have won a travel scholarship based on a proposal I wrote to conduct independent research in Dornach, Switzerland on the work of Rudolf Steiner and the evolution of building in the area, as influenced by his anthroposophical style.
point is - we are going to switzerland for about 2 weeks this summer! i am going to get to experience some of my favorite works of architecture in person!
