Hundertwasser House

Residential Building of the City of Vienna


Kegelgasse 36-38, 1030 Vienna, Austria

Original coauthor em. o. Univ.-Prof. Arch. DI Josef Krawina
Planning: Arch. DI Peter Pelikan

A house,
an unusual house,

that does not correspond to
the usual cliches and norms
of academic architecture
a house conceived and designed by a painter
an adventure in modern times
a journey to an unknown land
a journey into the land of creative architecture
where there are window rights and tree tenants
and uncontrolled irregularities
uneven floors, woodlands on the roof
spontaneous vegetation
and barriers of beauty

a journey into the land
where nature and man meet in creation
a report about the first free house

a painter dreams

a painter dreams about houses and
a beautiful architecture in which man is free

and this dream becomes a reality
