inspiration: hundertwasser | architecture

hundertwasser was an austrian artist and best known for his contemporary paintings and architectural designs ... when we got the opportunity to visit vienna a few years ago,  i dragged my husband around town to see some of his buildings ... here are some of the photos i took of his amazing work ....

above and below:  hundertwasserhaus

i bought this amazing book (and yes my pattern of buying heavy art books and using up all my allowable luggage weight continued ... )

i'm hoping to see many more of his buildings in the near future ... here are just some on my wish list ....
