Leitner, who spearheaded the international protest to save the Wittgenstein House from demolition in 1971, reveals the uniqueness of this architecture.

At first Wittgenstein collaborated with Paul Engelmann, a disciple of Adolf Loos, but the finished work with its entirely new aesthetics is Wittgensteins, from his conception of architectural space to the smallest detail of a joint or a door handle.Now the author offers an extended reading of Wittgensteins architectural language, based on new insights. Leitner argues that it must be looked at, understood, and appreciated as an architectural-artistic achievement. Thus the philosophers building with its concise and complex vocabulary becomes a lesson in seeing.
