"This is the most thorough architectural 'crit' of a hut ever set down, the justification for which is that the hut was the setting in which Martin Heidegger wrote phenomenological texts that became touchstones for late-twentieth-century architectural theory." -- from the foreword by Simon Sadler

Beginning in the summer of 1922, philosopher Martin Heidegger (1889-1976) occu

به نظرم اگر کتاب جذابیتی دارد، این جذابیت وجهه ی رمانتیک و رازآمیز آن است و نه امری فلسفی

الف. توضیح بخش های کتاب

کتاب از چند بخش تشکیل شده: 1) مقدمه ی ایرج قانونی که گزارشی است تقریبا فلسفی از مفهوم کلبه در ذیل مفهوم سکنی گزیدن؛ 2) ترجمه ی دو نوشتار از هایدگر به نام های " منظره ی خلاق: چرا من ساکن روستاهایم؟" - در 4 صفحه - و "ساختن سکنی گزیدن اندیشیدن" - در 18 صفحه؛ 3) دو پیشگفتار به قلم سیمون سدلر و اندرو بنیامین در مورد این کتاب؛ 4) اصل کتاب آدام شار؛ 5) کتابشناسی. بخش اول و دوم افزوده ی ایرج ق

I am starting a new booklist to cover my ongoing research into my career goal of becoming a hillbilly.

This cottage, referred to in his essay "Why Do I Stay in the Provinces" is described in detail by architect Adam Sharr. A thin and enjoyable book to dream about making off-grid (no electricity until towards the end of H's life) cabin with a humanure toilet (H had an "earth toilet"). One would of course add rainwater collection and solar panels these days. I found it particularly interesting how

Although I enjoyed this book, I would only recommend it to serious Heidegger nerds. You learn extremely little about Heidegger from it, and, as Scharr would admit, the 'hut' in question is not particularly architecturally interesting.

The work is more a sort of architectural vignette than is an exploration of Heidegger's thoughts on 'dwelling'. So if you were, for example, an architecture person interested in learning more about Heidegger's writings on architecture, this is absolutely not the bo

This is my favorite picture book of my twenties. Well, maybe. It probably ties with Gregory Crewdson.

The book explores the relationship between Heidegger and his hut in Todtnauberg. While it explores that relationship, it also discusses the difference of province and city lives. It discusses how dwelling and living are two different things, and somehow had the hint of differing "home" and "house". The solitary experience was thoroughly discussed, and it inspired me to have my own solitary hut someday.

A few interesting insights into Heidegger's life in the mountains and it's relationship to his thinking on location and presence. But don't expect a lot in terms of learning about his work--it's a very cursory discussion.

Interesting look at the hut where Heidegger did most of his work. Offers some good insights in to how place affects our being.
