This is a drawing by Hundertwasser denoting his idea of an ideal balance of living for all forms of life in urban spaces. I love the concept, though I am not sureĀ  about its feasibility. I love most of Hundartwasser’s creations. His idea is that space is for living and must be representative of the people who live there. It must have a life of its own. Thus linearity is an artificial concept that is imposed on human life through modern architecture. He talked about undulating floors and kitsch design. While I agree with this on principle, I think we should make sure that while homes and architecture should be interesting and fun, they should also be sensitive to the needs of people with different abilities. An undulating floor might be inconvenient for a visually impaired individual for instance, but I am sure that these things can be worked around once we think about them.
