MUMUTH Music Theatre in Graz, Austria

El MUMUTH -Haus für Musik und Musiktheater, nuevo Teatro del al Música y Artes Escénicas de Graz (KUG) diseñado por Ben van Berkel -de la renombrada empresa de arquitectura holandesa UNStudio-, se inauguró oficialmente el pasado 1ro de marzo de 2009. La obra, adjudicada tras un concurso internacional con 212 entradas, fue la contribución de Austria a la Bienal de Venecia de Arquitectura. Del diseño del MUMUTH, el arquitecto Ben van Berkel dice: "El deseo de hacer un edificio que hable tanto acerca de la música como acerca de lo que un edificio puede ser, ha sido una constante a lo largo de los casi diez años que se tardó en construir el teatro, y los temas que son la base del edificio y de su organización general también han sufrido a lo largo de este tiempo".


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 will be officially opened on March 1st 2009. To celebrate this special event the Institute for Music Drama will present a performance of W.A. Mozart’s opera «The Magic Flute», just before a «Celebration for Otto Kolleritsch», Rector emeritus of KUG and a longstanding supporter of MUMUTH, will take place.

Since 1963 MUMUTH represents a central practice and event building for the KUG. «Finally we can offer our students an outstanding architectural building space to further their artistic training. The mission of the Arts University is the on-going development of the arts. Thanks to MUMUTH our audience can be increasingly involved in this exciting process», says Rector KUG Georg Schulz.

The new Music Theatre, designed by Ben van Berkel of the renowned Dutch architecture firm UNStudio following an international competition with 212 entries, has already formed the Austrian contribution to the Venice Biennale of Architecture.

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 19 million euro 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. In February 2009 the MUMUTH also hosted part of the 7th International Competition «Franz Schubert and Modern Music».
