Hundertwasser


'The straight line is soulless'
Renowned for his colourful, curvacious architectural designs
('which incorporate natural features of the landscape and use of irregular forms' - we're talking uneven floors, grassy roofs, trees growing from inside the rooms, with limbs extending out of windows...)
He took no payment for designing elaborate low-income apartment blocks

Hundertwasser House, Vienna

'It was worth it to prevent something ugly from going up in its place'
