To put an idea into action is underlying this intense work of the year 1969. For Hundertwasser it was about the picture becoming the conviction – already painted in 1952 in Vienna – that even tower blocks of a city can become "human dignity" by the windowright, by colourful painting and free designing, to be able to distribute this to as many people as possible: "When man is leaving the ground, he can make it up for his own creation."
Hundertwasser's wish to distribute such a motto, to achieve signal effects for many and to approach a lot of people through a huge edition of the graphics, to what he was encouraged by the technique of the silkcut, which allows editions of absolute equal quality. This fact made him pick the price of DM 100.- each, so the graphic was affordable for all people.
The printer Lino Coin of the Studio Quattro took this task which almost needed two years, and treaties with Dorothea Leonhart, the galerist of Munich, who had ordered this piece, settled the economic part. Technically the greatest variants were produced – a special system let 40 colourversions with 200 prints come into being -, but the cooperation between the three of the contractpartners attracted a lot of opposites leading to judicial disputes. Hundertwasser turned to the publishing company Ars Viva in Zürich and started the overworking of the remaining edition in ten versions with phosphoric colours and metalstamps. To create "beautiful skyscrapers" had established.
In San Francisco for example the instruction was given to ornament all tower blocks. The big distribution of this piece caused extraordinary effects, that is why Hundertwasser is not wrong by saying: "I regard this to be a very meaning work of graphics."
