Roofing Wednesdays: Hundertwasser House

The Hundertwasser House is an apartment building in Vienna designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser who was considered an architectural rebel. His vision was of "free architecture for all," meaning without standards, specifications or straight lines — kind of like Dr. Seuss!

Roofing Wednesdays: La Pedrera

La Pedrera ("stone quarry") is the more popular name for Casa Milà, designed by architect Antoni Gaudí, who created a roof with sentinels to stand guard, and took six years to build (1906-1912). In 1984, it was declared a World Heritage building by UNESCO. You can even take a tour of this spectacular building!
