Since its opening in 1997, the Kunsthaus Bregenz has promoted both international and Austrian contemporary artwork. The box-like exterior of the museum, designed by architect Peter Zumthor, uses glass panels to refract the light around it. Whether from natural sunlight during the day, or from artificial electric light at night, the museum appears to glow. This feature makes the Kunsthaus Bregenz a visual spectacle at any time of day!
