The House of C.G. Jung

New Publication March 2009 : THE HOUSE OF C.G.JUNG

House of C.G. Jung C. G. Jung, the important explorer of the human psyche and founder of Analytical Psychology, lived and worked in his home in Küsnacht on Lake Zürich from 1909 to 1961. Here he lived with his wife, Emma Jung-Rauschenbach, who was the heart of the home, as it were, and influenced life there with a woman’s wisdom. Their five children were raised here.

A hundred years after being built, and following the completion of recent renovation, this book is being published to document the creation of the property on Lake Zurich and its transformation since then. Its previous and present states are captured in texts and images. Various authors consider it from their own areas of expertise. The book is intended to be an art and architectural historical portrait of this unique home as well as a commemoration of its original builders and owners.
