The venue for the ITC 2010 was the Museum for Communication. Inside the museum, the space used for lectures was the 'Theosofentempel' (Theosophists Temple), designed by the dutch architect Karel de Bazel in 1916, who was also a member of the Theosophical Society, Adyar. The Museum is just a 2 minute walk away from the Blavatskyhouse.
