Hundertwasserhaus in Vienna

The Hundertwasserhaus in Vienna

The Hundertwasserhaus in Vienna is pretty much a piece of art. It’s an apartment complex designed with the philosophy that one should live in harmony with nature. This is why you see tons of greenery (trees, shrubs, etc.) growing literally out of the walls of the apartment.

A better view of the Hundertwasserhaus

The complex was conceptualized by the Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser with architect Joseph Krawina. It’s a really interesting place to see as they believed – same as Gaudi – that straight lines are unnatural and if a building was to feel natural, it shouldn’t have straight lines. Very interesting!

    I’m so jealous right now guys! I wish I saw this amazing piece of architecture with my own eyes. I’m a big fan of Gaudi and I saw a lot of its creation and only recently I discovered and learnt more about Friedensreich Hundertwasser. I need to go to Vienna soon I guess. Thanks for sharing :)

  • i remember seeing a documentary about this place on TV when I was young, and thinking: “THIS is a place I’d love to live in!”

    Hmm, a very interesting place. I think I’ll include in my places-to-visit list next time I travel to Vienna. It’s really a shame I go there very often but usually on business trips, so I don’t get to see many interesting things.
