Hundertwasser comment about the work:
A Hundertwasser House architecture reverie. The project was in progress. Combining architecture and painting is difficult. I am reproached in architecture circles for just painting houses: it is all a Potemkin façade, i. e., flat, with nothing behind it. And at that I build in tandem with the architect Pelikan extremely varied, complicated houses full of nooks and crannies. It is on the contrary precisely the T-square-straight, soulless architectures which are flat and easy to analyse and construct with a computer. My houses - the computer people have said - often need more data input than medieval cathedrals. (from: Hundertwasser 1928-2000, Catalogue Raisonné, Vol. 2, Taschen, Cologne, 2002, pp. 639-640)
