Austrian painter, architect and sculptor Friedensreich Hundertwasser passionately rejected the straight line, going so far as to call it “godless and immoral.” His Hundertwasserhaus, an apartment complex in Vienna, embodies that commitment to irregularity. Built between 1983 and 1985 with architects Joseph Krawina and Peter Pelikan, the building has undulating floors, a grass-covered roof and 250 trees growing inside the rooms, their limbs reaching out windows. The Hundertwasser House is now one of Vienna’s most visited buildings and a part of Austria’s cultural heritage.
