Hundertwasser tower

Museum De Buitenplaats in Eelde is a rather small museum though worth a visit because of their interesting exhibitions throughout the year. Until April 11 they present an exhibition about organic architecture, which they describe as 'architecture combined with art and nature'. With scale models, drawings, photos and paintings the work of Austrian architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928-2000), and the architect agency Alberts & Van Huut (established in 1963) is showed.

One of the first things that caught my eye in the museum was this model (scale 1:50) that looked like a building from a fantasy film, but is in fact a 35 m high observation tower that was designed by Hundertwasser and built on the grounds of a brewery in Bavaria, Germany. On top is a gold-plated observation ball that has a 10 meter diameter... (!) Unfortunately Hundertwasser died in the year 2000 during the tower's planning phase, so he never saw the actual result. 

9 opmerkingen:

  1. Fantastic. I looked Hundertwasser in Google, and love also his house.
    He was here new for me. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Het is sprookjesachtig, zo leuk al mensen dat ook kunnen bouwen.

  3. Kijken of we dat nog halen voor 11 april.

  4. This makes me think of fairytales or something... very cool


Don't be shy and leave a comment. I'd love to read what you think!
