Amicable correspondence with Marika Koszka, in German: "[...] But money is quite irrelevant. That is to say, I was never particularly interested in it, not even when I was a hitchhiker and slept on the streets. But undoubtedly it will be of some help to you. The important thing is only not to have any depressing thoughts [...]" (10 Feb. 1973). - "Last evening at the gate I quite forgot to mention that I have a lot of furniture for you should you need anything for your room: chairs, mattresses, cushions, beds, closets ... Also, I would like to show you my view and the meadow from up here [...]" (24 Feb., no year).

In German, to Marina Bossew: "Lying in bed naked shortly before midnight and read your letter wanted to write tomorrow then thought better right away or I won't have the time for I am in the midst of an exciting architectural project and want to go on holiday the day after tomorrow. My holidays however mean: painting. For my fall exhibition. [...] Fierce reactions after my discussion on the 'Club 2' TV show, especially in the 'Arbeiterzeitung' ('Workers' Paper'), may send you something. Funny actually how one can gain such a false impression of me. But little surprise that the people shroud me in such a mystique if the scribblers go after me that way [...] Am most envious of your world cruise. Are you rich? [...] My house has become a castle, is getting more and more beautiful, like an oriental palace with silver bulbous spires, hundreds of windows all different. Finally I am also an architect - hope to survive this. Well worth the effort - the house will be too beautiful to be believed. Particularly for Vienna [...]" (transl.). - The sketch shows the "Hundertwasserhaus", then in its planning stages - an apartment house in Vienna's Landstraße district built after Hundertwasser's idea and concept with architect Joseph Krawina, today considered an expressionist landmark of the city.
