Hundertwasser Haus and Kunsthaus (222)

222 - Distinctive places and buildings

The work is full of humour, colour, interest and touches the child in us all. It has created a new identity of place and a new tourist destination. There is nothing else quite like Hundertwasser's work. It challenges all the norms of planning and architecture, the projects are financially and economically successful and, by and large, people love them. Although some regard the work as 'kitsch', there is no doubt it is fun. The key elements are a sense of place, partnership, creative flair, public art and humanity.
