Friedrich Kiesler (1890-1965) was an architect, artist, designer, set designer and theoretician.

His was the vision of a radically new concept of the interior: the idea of a polydimensional living space, an organically shaped continuum blending colours, forms and light with magical-mythical ideas to create an individual microcosm. The biomorphological design for an Endless House based on this vision, which he began developing in the 1930s, was Kiesler´s life-long dream; never implemented, it nevertheless exerted a greater influence on architects and artists than many realized 20th century buildings. One of the merits of Kiesler´s architectural concept Endless House is to have wedded profound artistic exploration to different academic disciplines such as psychology, the natural sciences, the social sciences and the arts.

The application of his approach to design with respect to the demands on living space sets standards to which today´s ubiquitous "bubble architecture" must measure up.
