Coolest Apartment Block on Earth

Friedensreich Hundertwasser was an architect born in Vienna who died in New Zealand.
Today he is most widely renowned for his revolutionary architectural designs, which incorporate natural features of the landscape, and use of irregular forms in his building design. He felt that standard architecture could not be called art, and declared that the design of any building should be influenced by the aesthetics of its eventual tenants.

Here are some pictures of one of his designs, the Waldspirale in Darmstadt, Germany. Among other things it contains over 1000 windows, no two of which are alike.
