Hundertwasserhaus in Wien

Hundertwasserhaus Wien

The architecture of Hundertwasser always strikes me with its creativity and love to nature...The Hundertwasserhaus in Vienna, built 1983-1985, is no exception. Even if one may enjoy the building only from outside (no visits inside are available), his art as well as the power of colours impress a lot! Loving also the green plants, Hundertwasser had made this building a home for 250 trees and bushes (on the roof and the balconies)...Antonio Gaudi has had a big influence on his works.

Since 2005 the "Hundertwasserhaus" is the forth biggest place of interest in Vienna and Austria!

Gaudi is always nice to see, I am still thinking of my visits to Park Guell and La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.

dear WebbieLady: indeed your German is so good, it means literally "the hundred waters":-)))his style is very colourful and also recycling focused (i have seen public toilets made by himin New Zealand, where he has used empty bottles (4-5of them) to create a window:-);
have a happy long Easter-weekend!
