Our holiday was at the end and we were on the way back to the Netherlands. As we drove back from the Schwarzwald, a nice part of Germany, we would pass Darmstadt.
So why not take a look at another Friedensreich Hundertwasser building. It's fascinating how he created every building. And since i saw a building of him in Magdeburg i'm looking for buildings from him when i travel. So this was a oppertunity i couldn't say no too.
The building was ready in the year 2000 a couple of months after the dead of Friedensreich Hundertwasser. As always the building of Hundertwasser is organic. Everywere there are growing plants and trees even on the roof.. And also here the colourful round pillars from ceramic. The shape of the building is in a U-form with in the middle a backyard where a little artifical lake is and a playground for the kids.The building has over a thousend windows. Every window has a different shape. The building has 12 floors and there are 105 appartments of which some interiors are also designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser. Under the building is a parkinggarage and on top of the spiral is a bar and a cafe. So enjoy the building and the photos.
Friedensreich Hundertwasser was born in Vienna, Austria, on the 15th of december 1928 under the name of Friedrich Stowasser. On the 19th of februari 2000 he died on board of the RMS Queen Elizabeth 2 as a New Zealand citizen. If you're going to Darmstadt in Germany the Waldspirale of Friedensreich Hundertwasser is one of the buildings you must see.
