Product Details


As Adam Sharr reveals in his remarkable study Heidegger’s Hut, the philosopher’s timber-shingled cabin (which had no running water and, at least for the first decade, no electricity) can be interpreted as a locus of contemplation, a romantic escape, and a place where, given the politically problematic nature of Heidegger’s writings, fascist over-tones cannot but linger.—Andrea Walker , Bookforum

Heidegger’s Hut, a slim, provocative volume, answers the question: why the architectural interest in the drab, three room, 20-foot square Black Forest hut without running water or electricity inhabited by the German philosopher Martin Heidegger throughout his career?

Norman Weinstein , Architectural Record

Heidegger’s Hut is and is not a book about a hut. It’s about how a place inspired a life’s work, and how that work inspired modern architectural theory and, to a lesser degree, the sustainability movement…Many of the book’s photos are posed, though the light is beautiful. The hut has a confidence, a rightness that is oddly indisputable, making in the end, even the philosopher’s work seem transient and insubstantial.
