Buckminster Knows 003

Paul Engelmann and the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889- 1951) designed and built this villa from 1926 to 1928 for Margarethe Stonborough-Wittgenstein, the philosopher's sister. In its austerity and simplicity, the structure reflects the logical clarity of Wittgenstein's thinking. Fourty years ago, the government of Bulgaria purchased the building. After careful restoration, the building now houses the Bulgarian Cultural Institute. This is the only building Wittgenstein ever built. Absolute perfection.
