Friedrich Nietzsche was born 175 years ago.
Let us ask this question: how many Nietzschean architects were / are there ? Le Corbusier comes to mind. But how many others ? Not too many… Nietzsche was uncomfortable even for those “manly artists” architects usually are.
Yet Nietzsche, despite his apparent “masculinism”, was feminine as well… much more, perhaps, than one might think. And "the eternal return of the same" could legitimize this statement.
We ask you to design A HOUSE FOR FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE.
Perish, dear architect, perish! And be reborn through this perishing.
Do not hesitate to die, together with your building, since only by dying you can endure.
Make a house so very brutal that, at the peak of its brutality, it becomes suave.
Design A HOUSE FOR FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE.
