I managed to capture some pictures of the green citadel, built based on plans from Friedensreich Hundertwasser (in case you don't know that name, you can read here about him and his work: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frieden..._Hundertwasser)

I wasn't really prepared for taking this kind of photos, equipped onlywith a 28-210mm zoom lens, but it still gives you a hint of that unusual building. And yes - colors are ok that way, maybe even a tad more vibrant in real life. There are flats to rent, offices, shops, a restaurant, a kindergarden... everything in that building.

Here we go, have fun.

#1 - backside


#2 - some details


#3 - balcony details


#4 - again some details


That's it so far, have some more but that's enough for a first glance

Have fun,
Th.

Very interesting subject, good snaps, and thanks for posting the link - it was beneficial to read the bio on Herr Hundertwasser and then come back to your photos.

This is a great post!

And the naming of the building is of course an artistic interpretation of reality...:?

Pink being the inverse of emerald green, perhaps it was his way of saying this was the opposite of a citadel?

Two more pictures for your viewing pleasure:

#5 - one of the inner courtyards - fountain detail. There are two of these courtyards, not very big and you have to watch your steps as the road isn't very flat inside.


#6 - front side, panorama made from two pictures, taken from the other side of the road. As you can see the lighting conditions were ... ummm... challenging. Most of the front was still in the shadows, harsh light coming from the right. 2-3 hours later or so I might have gotten better light (read: from a better angle), but at that time it was already raining at that day... so this is the best you can get atm.


Regards,
Th.

The images were a joy to observe!My impression on Friedensreich's style, depending on your photos,issomewhat similar tothat Antoni Gaudi, promising a break away from theregularsightsof our good old 'post and lintel' architecture!!
