KUNST HAUS WIEN
Yesterday evening I went to see an exhibition about shoes in art and design at KUNST HAUS WIEN. The museum is located in the 3district, in a former Thonet furniture factory that has been remodelled by Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser. For him human misery was a result of the rational, sterile, monotonous architecture; he propagated instead an architecture in harmony with nature with uneven floors, woods on the roof and spontaneous vegetation. His buildings are not to everybody's taste, but they really stand out of the normal.
