Located on the bank of the Mur, this architectural symbol is locally referred to as the "friendly alien". Like a bubble of air, the bluish, shimmering skin of the Kunsthaus floats above its glass-walled ground floor. Spanning up to 60 m. in width, the biomorphic construction envelops two large exhibition rooms without additional supports. From the surface of the acrylic glass "skin", strikingly shaped "nozzles" project outwards, inclined to the north and thus provide optimum natural lighting. Kunsthaus Graz is an art centre for organizing international exhibitions. It does not collect or set up permanent exhibitions, nor does it have permanent depots or research departments. Into the main eastern facade an additional architectural concept called BIX is integrated: a matrix of 930 fluorescent lamps, designed by Berlin based architects Realities:United. Adjusting the brightness individually at an infinite variability with 20 frames/second images and films are displayed.
