When talking about the architectural creations of this Viennese artist, the emphasis is placed on the irregular forms, the use of natural materials, the afforestation of roofs, colorful facades, mosaics that decorate everything – walls and floors, staircases and railings, furniture and details in the space.

Nature was Hundertwasser’s great inspiration. In numerous speeches and public appearances, he spoke about the preservation of the environment.

The best way to get to know this colorful artist is through his own words. “I should perhaps like to be known as the magician of vegetation or something similar. We are in need of magic. I fill a picture until it is full with magic, as one fills up a glass with water. Everything is so infinitely simple, so infinitely beautiful.” Friedensreich Hundertwasser
