Hundertwasser was commissioned to architecturally refurbish and redesign the entire incineration plant, along with its 120-metre chimney strack. The plant was planned by the Japanese architectural team Showa Sekkei within the context of the "Maishima Island Project" for the city of Osaka. The incinerator is equipped with the latest and most advanced filter systems.
Three stories were designed as an adventure world with a didactic component in order to make visitors, especially school children, conscious of the problems of waste and to encourage their cooperation in working towards a garbage-free society.
