Hundertwasser Art centre in Whangarei

Experience art and nature in perfect harmony at Whangārei’s Hundertwasser Art Centre; a unique architectural project dedicated to artist, visionary and ecological activist, Friedensreich Hundertwasser. Absolute rationalism, geometric straight lines and the uniformity of modern architecture are abandoned in favour of new values like uniqueness, romanticism, individuality, creativity, especially creativity in harmony with nature. Hundertwasser created houses in which the creativity of nature meets human creativity. In keeping with his philosophy, the Hundertwasser Art Centre restores territories to nature with spontaneous vegetation, tree tenants and an afforested roof.
