The colorful, vivid and so “smiling” Happy Rizzi House was designed by an American pop-artist, known for his awesome 3D artworks, James Rizzi. Unfortunately, this talented artist died in December 2011.

In collaboration with an architect Konrad Kloster and gallery’s owner Olaf Jäschke, James Rizzi managed to add more bright colors and joy to the very serious part of Germany, Magni quarter. Naturally, there were many people who were against the idea to put such a psychedelic building in the centre of one of the oldest and important business quarters of Brunswick. But some of them changed their mind and this odd house got the right to be built.

Currently, this cartoon-inspired unique building is an unofficial border between business and historical districts of the city, which has been accepted by the urban community as important and unique part of Brunswick landscapes. The strange faces, eyes and wild shapes colored in bright pinks and depicted on Happy Rizzi House may firstly surprise some passers-by and tourists, but then they will make them smile and put in a good mood for sure.
