The building, designed by Peter Cook and Colin Fournier, has an organic shape with a skin made of iridescent blue acrylic panels. One of the most unusual museums you'll ever visit...
The Kunsthaus Graz was nicknames "Friendly Alien" by the residents of Graz
At night, the building glows by way of a computerized lighting system beneath the transparent skin. With large, tube like "nozzles" for windows that stick out from the curved roof, the structure undeniably reminds of an outer-space creature that has landed in the middle of Graz's historic town center.
Functionally and technically, the Kunsthaus meets the most up-to-date requirements for museums on the international loan circuit. Its 11,100m2 of usable space provide everything its managers need to participate in the global exhibition business on the highest level. An innovative and cost-effective air-conditioning system meets all the demands of the most important art owners.Kunsthaus Graz
