The Hundertwasserhaus (of Hundertwasserhaus) has become a cultural landmark not just in Vienna where it is located, but for the entire country of Austria. This is despite the property only being built in the early 1980’s. The building was the brainchild of academic architects, Professor Joseph Krawina and Peter Pelikan who conceived a property made of deliberately, uneven floors and living materials forming part of the structure and fabric of the house.
The house is actually composed of several apartments and office units and is named after the artist, Friedensreich Hundertwasser, who donated his design and time for free because he did not wish for an ugly building to be built instead. The home has a roof constructed from earth and grass with trees planted inside the building and constituent rooms with the tree branches extending to the outside through windows build around them. The Hundertwasserhaus is one of the most visited buildings in the whole of Austria.
