The
Hundertwasser-
Haus


Friedenreich Hundertwasser's famous public housing project in Vienna's 3rd district was a reaction to the post-war housing blocks. No straight lines, individual window design, colour and trees on the roof were some of the ideas the Austrian architect, artist and environmentalist incorporated into his plans.

If he is not a sculptor or painter, he can only be a builder."
