Hi All
I am an architect, interested in Nietzsche philosophy, and researching to create an architecture for Overhuman. I have read all his books and has a clear idea about Nietzsche's thought and overhuman character but it would be great to have other's opinion about it. So what type of space do you think overhuman desire?

@iraj2829,
How about a cave in Persia--next door to Zarathustra?

@iraj2829,
Have you seen the first Matrix movie? Did you see where Neo was pulled from the mechanics of the Matrix. That, to me, is the epitome of Bauhaus.

Parc de la Villette in Paris, was partially based on Derrida's philosophy which was influenced by his reading of Nietzche. You might find some inspiration by researching this.

We were just absolutely overrun by overhumans until open season was declared. Hell, even the homeless guys got into the fun!

@raprap,
The Bauhaus, as I understand it, was the epitome of Modernism; Nietzsche the Santo Patron of Post-Modernism. Question

@fresco,
I know that project but I do think post structuralist or deconstructivist ever appreciate overhuman as they should. To me Derrida got to the point that he come close only to the nihilsm state of Nietzsche philosophy.

Modernism is far away from Nietzsche's philosophy and postmodern or deconstruction are only close to the nihilism state where any structure is removed but there is no new creativity. They disturb convention and order and leave it however overhuman is a destroyer and creator.

@iraj2829,
As far as I'm concerned Nietzsche's "nihilism state" was the necessary rejection of absolutism (God is dead), making room for the freedom for humans to create their own reality--to be the gods of their own life..

@JLNobody,
That's correct. Nihilism state is the liberation from authorities such as God, morality, religion, ....
But I think postmodernism stuck in that groundless state (nihilism) while Nietzsche says that nihilsm stand at the door and overhuman move toward action, experimentation and creativity. He keeps insists on that overhuman is a creator.
