Mr. Martin Gledhill BSc, BArch MA is working on a book about Carl Jung's Bolingen Tower. Martin is a senior teaching fellow in the Department of Architecture & Civil Engineering, focusing on the symbolism and spirituality of architecture. The Bollingen Tower is a home built by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung. In appearance, it is a small castle with four towers. It is located in the village of Bollingen on the shore of Lake Zürich. Jung bought the land in 1922 after the death of his mother. In 1923 he built a two-story round tower on this land. It was a stone structure suitable to be lived in. Additions to this tower were constructed in 1927, 1931, and 1935, resulting in a building that has four connected parts. A second story was added to the 1927 addition after the death of Jung's wife in 1955, signifying "an extension of consciousness achieved in old age." For much of his life Jung spent several months each year living at Bollingen. The Tower is now owned by a family trust and is not open to the public.
