The Green Citadel of Magdeburg, completed in 2005, was the last project of Austrian artist/architect Hundertwasser. The pictures are worth thousands of words, so I'll just let you evaluate the building for yourself. One interesting thing: I had always wondered why it was called the "green" citadel when it is painted pink. Then, when I was placing the map pin for this entry and zoomed in on the building, I saw that the roof is completely covered with plants and grass. From above it is green!
