Format: Hardcover
Two features of this book are its topic, a truly unique mind of contemporary architecture and its colourful indepth account of Friedrich Hundertwasers unique style. The book begins with a historical portrayal of Hundetwasser which informs the reader of the motivation behind such a meaningful and creative architectural style. This book covers many of his projects most of which are located in Vienna and rural Austria. The Authors spare nothing at presenting a detailed account of each of his projects including plans and informative photographic angles provided in full colour. There is much focus placed on his elaborate roof top garden designs and his innovative tree windows, that are key to his popularity and sustainble developments goals. This book is a necessity for any budding urban designer, architect, planner or new house builder. Hundertwasser's approach is a leading example of sustainble development in a time when governements around the world are seeking ways in which high density can find its way back into our cities making them safe, lively and green.This innovative style and tactile images will inspire any reader. I encourage you to enjoy it today.

Big fan of Hundertwasser. His ideas should be used more in practise.

Why Can't We All Live in Places Like This? 29 Dec. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I spent much of the 60s and 70s with posters of Hundertwasser's paintings on my walls. It was always clear that he was an architect, but one without any commissions. So when I came across this book, I was ecstatic. He's actually building! He is freeing us from the tyranny of straight lines, 90 degree angles, and an architecture divorced from nature. Some of his buildings are like something out of Willa Wonka and the Chocolate Factory!
I'd love to live in a city filled with Hundertwassers rather than the neo-prison building that passes for architecture these days. And so would others -- rents at Hundertwasser buildings in Vienna fetch a huge premium. And he is regreening cities at the same time. I can't wait to go visit!
This book is also wonderful for preteens -- it will stretch their minds about what is possible -- and give new reason to study the math and physics necessary to realize the cities of our dreams.
This book was my Christmas present to myself (I also gave it to others), and it was the best present I got! Every time I open it, I want to sing!

Filled with innovative solutions to sustainability problems. 18 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The ideas in this book expolore the relationship of manmade structures to nature. Hundertwasser displays many of his creative solutions to keeping green spaces while still making spaces for people to live. He addresses the human side of sustainability by forming spaces that "make the whole person vibrate" with life.

Very Interesting! 18 Oct. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book about this extravagant architect is a very nice edition, including beautiful images and clearly explained background information. I regret not having bought this book from Amazon, though; I purchased it in Belgium, at a much, much higher price, and still I think it was worth it. Certainly a great addition to your personal art library. Buy it and enjoy!

Architecture for the People 27 Nov. 2003
By Melinda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Hundertwasser Architecture: For a More Human Architecture in Harmony With Nature Is an amazing look at Hundertwasser's structures and ideas about structure. For builders, designers, architects who believe in building structures which flow with both their environment and their function, this book is nothing short of inspirational. Many ideas for not only building and designing from the raw ground but also for retrofitting and improving existing structures. Hundertwasser's ideas that the buildings should "belong" to the users: trees, people's interactions with the space, allowing those who inhabit the building to have a bit of control of the building so they are committed to the structure and not just passing through are all expressed here. Designers of stucco boxes could benefit from his ideas.

Hundertwasser Ideas & Concepts: Is America Ready for a Design Revolution? 13 July 2007
By Michael J. Locke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I fell in love with the work of Antoni Gaudi during a visit to Barcelona in the 1990's, and frankly wondered why his delightful ideas were never widely emulated. During a recent visit to the design studio of Metal Artist Brett Goldstone, Brett showed me a copy of "Hundertwasser Architecture" and I was immediately hooked! His revolutionary ideas on "human architecture" should be compulsory reading at every school of architecture and every city planning department! It's time we brought more life into our living and working environments; Hundertwasser's design and architectural concepts should at the very least be considered.
