Overview

Fans of Hundertwasser may well be tempted to trek down the Gumpendorfer Strasse to see a similar transformation of a council housing block by artist Arik Brauer in collaboration with the architect Peter Pelikan who also worked on the Hundertwasserhaus. Built on the initiative of the popular Viennese mayor Helmut Zilk between 1991-1993, the facade is decorated with two large ceramic friezes by Brauer but as a whole the building is indistinguishable from Hundertwasser's except for the absence of vegetation.
