The Kunsthaus Graz opened its doors in 2003, the architectural piece de resistance of Graz's year as European Capital of Culture. The biomorphous building designed by Peter Cook and Colin Fournier-known locally as the Friendly Alien-has since become an attraction for art lovers and the culturally minded from all over the world. But it has also become an essential landmark in the urban identity of the city of Graz. As an exhibition centre for contemporary art, the Kunsthaus exhibits Austrian and international art from 1960 onwards. Its BIX media facade-designed by Berlin designers realities:united-constitutes a unique fusion of architecture and media technology. Effectively a large screen in the middle of the city, it acts as an instrument of art communication.

The architectural design of this museum is unique, grotesque, fascinating and perplexing all at once. It is worth spending a fair amount of time circling the structure to get a sense of the entire project, also to cross the street and to walk over the...More

This extremely odd building is worth looking at but you can't get a photo because the location is in the middle of streets & other buildings. If you walk along the river you will come to the Murinsel which is much better.

Extremely disappointed with the exhibitions within this iconic building. Can't believe I spent €9 on admission. Such a shame.

Superb building. However, the exhibitions on both floors left a lot to be desired. The one on the 2nd floor was just about architecture, with information only in German. To boot we were followed round by a museum attend with the charm and manner of...More
