Another example of kind of cool art nouveau style from the 80s. It's called Hundertwasserhaus and believe it or not is in Vienna!

The Vienna Secession Movement was Art Noveau. It doesnt surprise me at all that this building is in Vienna. I was surprised, however, that the building was built in the 1980s. (I wikipedia'ed it). Very cool.

For me the coolest building in the world is the Turning Torso in Malmo, Sweden.
And anything that is made by Santiago Calatrava is cool for me.
