The Kunsthaus is the stylish art house for
exhibitions in Graz, and located on the bank of the Mur river, on the
corner of the Südtirolerplatz and the Lendkai.
The Kunsthaus is also seen as a new architectural landmark of Graz.
The creators of the Kunsthaus are two designers from London, Peter Cook
and Colin Fournier, who realized an impressive synthesis which unites
their innovative design language with the historic setting of this
urban district along the Mur.
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

The underground car park offers space for 146 vehicles. As a
multi-disciplinary venue for exhibitions, events and other means of
presenting contemporary art, new media, and photography, the Kunsthaus
Graz has a complex palette of features and functions. While the
building’s interior is meant to inspire its curators as black box of
hidden tricks (Colin Fournier), its outer skin is a media façade which
can be changed electronically.
