Butterfly

My theme for this year is architecture and to narrow it down: Friedrich Hundertwasser, architect, painter and environmentalist. His use of bright colours and fluid lines have attracted me for a long time, straight lines are "the tool of the devil". His work will keep me inspired for a long time.

Butterfly

All the walls and stair wells are decorated with flower and animal motifs in mosaic. The entire building is lined with colourful bands of tiles.

In creating individual motifs by the tenants no two motifs are the same.

Small pieces of silk are bonded and stitched down by machine to create the butterfly.
