The MUMUTH - Haus für Musik und Musiktheater, a faculty building for the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz (KUG), has been ten years in the making, including two years of construction and was officially opened on March 1st 2009. For KUG, the House of Music and Music Drama, MUMUTH, has been a long-sought-for central building for practicing and events since 1963. Of the design of MUMUTH, Architect Ben van Berkel says: "The desire to make a building that is as much about music as a building can be, has been a constant throughout the nearly ten years that it took to build the theatre and the themes that are at the basis of the building and its overall organization have also endured throughout this time". Construction of the new music theatre began in March 2006 and in August 2008 the Federal Real Estate Society (BIG) entrusted the main part of the building to the KUG (text from World Architecture News).
