Photographer's Note

This building is a waste incineration installation in Vienna - Spittelau.

Originally this building was constructed around 1967. In 1988 Friedensreich Hundertwasser was asked to design the reconstruction of the installation. Hundertwasser doubted for a year wheather he shoud take on the project being a very environmental friendy person. He finally was convinced when he heard about the necessity and that it would get very modern and environmental friendly equipment. 40% of Vienna's waste is incinerated here which gives enough energy for 40000 households. Due to the modern technique exhaust in minimal and long within the limits allowed.
