The oriental Chimney of Vienna

On the way to our silkscreenprinting studio I am passing the SPITTELAU DISTRICT HEATING PLANT every week. Such moments remind me how blessed I am to live in Vienna. Is there anywhere a more beautiful INCINERATION PLANT in the world? Equipped with the most modern emission purification technology, the façade was artistically redesigned by Friedensreich Hundertwasser in 1987 and got a tourist attraction since then.

located right at the underground station Spittelau U4 and U6

After the mayor of Osaka visited the Spittelau in 1995, he was so impressed that he built a twin sister  in his town (MAISHIMA INCINERATION PLANT, Maishima Island Project, Osaka) in 2001.
