Architecture book Kunsthaus Graz

Today, the Kunsthaus Graz is an integral part of the urban identity of Austria's second largest city. Even though this "friendly alien" by architects Sir Peter Cook and Colin Fournier, which landed in 2003, has now become a familiar object, perspectives on the building have changed over time and will continue to do so in the future. The book looks back at almost twenty years since its creation, unfolding kaleidoscopically and focusing primarily on the uses and usages of the Kunsthaus. In local as well as global terms, the Kunsthaus Graz is contextualised and related to its users.

Authors: Pablo v. Frankenberg, Anselm Wagner, Katia Huemer, Niels Jonkhans, Elisabeth Schlögl, Barbara Steiner, Sophia Walk, Peter Cook and Colin Fournier.

With photographic contributions by Arthur Zalewski and Martin Grabner

Edited by Barbara Steiner, Sophia Walk, Anna Lena von Helldorff, Katia Huemer
