Alternativ Architecture in ViennaFriedensreich Hundertwasser was born 1928 in Vienna as Friedrich Stowasser. He changed his name 1949 into Hundertwasser. His education was just a three months visit to the viennese acadamy of art in 1948. So he is in fact an autodidact.
In the years 1949-1952 he travels a lot to Marokko, Tunis, Paris and to the Toskana. These travels gave him decisive influences and experiences for his future artistic work.
Hundertwasser believes that man should live more in harmony with nature. Our buildings should contribute to our environment and our living space should resemble the environment we evolved in. To that end, he plants quite a few trees to grow out of buildings and the floors are quite irregular - three-dimensional surfaces.
