"In a society that celebrates the inessential, architecture can put up a resistance, counteract the waste of forms and meanings, and speak its own language. I believe that the language of architecture is not a question of a specific style. Every building is built for a specific use in a specific place and for a specific society"

Peter Zumthor

Location: Graz, Austria

Architect: Vito Acconci


The Murinsel is an artificial floating platform in the middle of the Mur river in Graz, Austria. It was designed by the American artist Vito Acconci because of the fact that Graz became European Capital of Culture in 2003. The building is 50m long and 20m wide and it looks like giant shell. Inside the building there are amphitheatre, cafe and a playground.
