About our Cover Picture – BLUE BLUES by Hundertwasser
Life in harmony with nature – This was the vision of the famous Austrian painter Friedensreich Hundertwasser. Hundertwasser was a
forerunner in ecology and engaged for a more human architecture in harmony with nature. His masterpieces can be admired at the
KUNST HAUS WIEN which houses a fabulous permanent Hundertwasser exhibition.
