Hundertwasser's comment on the work

The city-dweller stands before high buildings, not in the buildings and not looking out of the windows. He is almost invisible, you can see buildings through him, or his clothing is a kind of camouflaged architecture.(from: Hundertwasser Architecture, Cologne, 1997, p. 10)Clothing is the second and the house the third skin of man. House and man are equal in size. (from: Hundertwasser 1928-2000, Catalogue Raisonné, Vol. 2, Taschen, Cologne, 2002, p. 182)
