Hundertwasser and Architecture: Harmony with Nature & Man

My journey continues with Hundertwasser inspiration and his belief that architecture should be in harmony with nature and man. Here are a couple of my latest pieces. I have more in the pipeline I'll share as I get them complete. ~enjoy

'Friedensreich Hundertwasser started out as a painter. Since the early 1950s, however, he increasingly became focused on architecture, writing and reading in public .’ advocating natural forms of decay. In 1972, he had his first architectural models made for the TV-show ‘W√ľnsch dir was', in order to demonstrate his ideas on forested roofs, "tree tenants" and the "window right" of every tenant to embellish the facade around his windows. In these models, Hundertwasser also developed new architectural shapes, such as the "eye-slit" house and the "high-rise meadow house".[1] ~source Wikipedia
