An Illustrated Introduction" by John Fletcher

Architectural model room designed by Karl Stockmeyer in Malsch, near Karlsruhe, Germany. Begun in 1909 with Steiner's blessing, it was finished in 1968. The floor is lowered so that a seated person has a view as though the room were full-sized. The room is positioned so that the sun shines on the first northern column at 9:00 AM on the spring equnox. Steiner characterized the model as "the first Rosicrucian temple to stand on the surface of the earth," i.e., to not be built underground.
