As a painter, architecture doctor, ecological activist and philosopher Friedensreich Hundertwasser is one of the most fascinating artists of our time. His striving for harmony between man and nature is reflected in his role as a pioneer for green architcture, urban greening and environmntal protection. His buildings all over the world visualize his concept of architecture in harmony with nature: afforested roofs, tree tenants, organic forms instead of the grid system, diversity instead of monotony. As a promoter of human creativity and self-determination, he aimed to open people's eyes to the beautiful things in life and encourage them to think and act creatively.
This book shows numerous images of Hundertwasser architecture projects and compiles Hundertwasser quotations which inspire contemplation.
