Chiseled in stone, these Latin words decorate the elaborately designed portal of the C.G. Jung House in Küsnacht and commemorate the completion of the building on the bank of Lake Zurich. The project began in 1906, with a letter from Carl Gustav Jung to his cousin Ernst Fiechter (1875–1948), an architect and lecturer on architectural history at the Technische Hochschule in Munich: “We have in mind to build a house someday, in the country near Zurich, on the lake.”

At the time, however, Jung was an impecunious assistant medical director at the Burghölzli mental home in Zurich. What enabled him to build a manorial home was the fact that his wife, Emma Jung-Rauschenbach, had suddenly become wealthy after her father died young. —Andreas 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 1908 to 1961, along with his wife, Emma Jung-Rauschenbach, whose wisdom was the heart of the house where they raised their five children.

A hundred years after it was built and following the completion of renovation, this house is represented in this lavishly illustrated record, published to document the creation of the property on Lake Zurich and its transformation since then. The House of C. G. Jung captures its previous and present states in text and images.

This volume is an architectural portrait of a truly unique home, as well as a commemoration of its original builders and owners.

Includes 160 illustrations, many in color.
