UNStudio's MUMUTH - Haus für Musik und Musiktheater - a building for the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz, Austria, opened yesterday. I love how dynamic it is - the building looks like it's in motion and about to burst at the seams. The interior looks pretty awesome, too.

From UNStudio's website:
The building is structured to combine a unit-based volume (the black box of the theatre) and a series of movement-based volumes (foyer and public circulation). Because this organising principle is made constructive, a fluent internal spatial arrangement is actualised, efficiently connecting spaces to each other. The multipurpose auditorium can seat up to 450, and that is adaptable to a great variety of performances. The free-flowing space of the foyer is made possible by a spiraling constructive element that connects the entrance to the auditorium and to the music rooms above, thus welding together ‘with a twist’ the three levels of this side of the building. This twist forms a 3D interpretation of the repetitive pattern, executed in the muted tones of stage make-up, which is applied to the facades and then enveloped by a glittering mesh.
