Religious library for an old pastor and an old house
A clergyman lived in retirement on a lonely highway
near a small community.
Though he felt very well among all his books, the loneliness
became more and more oppressive with each passing day.
Without further ado, he therefore decided to make his extensive
library with works on religion, ethics and philosophy accessible
to all who are interested in order to make contact
with people by the way.
Since his small home, which had been built in 1939,
was on the brink of its capacity, he decided to have it gutted,
altered and extended.
A classical extension was out of the question since he did not
want to affect the simplicity of his house.
After weeks of inconclusive doubt, an angel appeared to
him in a dream and gave him an idea.
Since he knew that the second idea might already come
from the devil, he decided to commission the implementation
of this idea immediately.
A ring-shaped space-frame structure now houses
his collection of 10,000 books, which is open to the general
public on three days a week.
Madonna del Granduca. Raffaelo. 1504
