30th anniversary of the KunstHausWien
09. April 2021
The KunstHausWien owes its existence to the initiative of Hundertwasser’s manager and companion of the road, Joram Harel. He found suitable premises for a permanent exhibition of Hundertwasser’s works in the third district of Vienna, the building of the former furniture factory of the Thonet Brothers, built in 1892.
The reconstruction according to Hundertwasser’s concept was carried out from 1989 to 1991, implementing the artist’s principles of a more human architecture in harmony with nature, irregularity and variety of shapes, the uneven floor, the afforested roof and vertical greening by tree tenants.
