The Hundertwasserhaus in Wien, Austria is a special residential building designed by artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser. He made different proposals to make residential homes more human – including trees as tenants (“Baummieter) and the right to paint the outside facade as wide as your arm reaches (“Fensterrecht“).

In 1977 the mayor of Wien asked the chancelor of Austria to allow him to realize his vision in the city of Wien. Together with the architect Josef Krawina it was realized until 1985, today it is a museum. Other fantastic buildings designed by Hundertwasser are the Grüne Zitadelle in Magdeburg, Germany and the railway station of Uelzen, Germany.
