Forum Stadtpark is an outpost of militant modernity in Graz that came into being after World War II in an effort to take a stand against former Nazis or Austrofascists who were still in power. The institution emerged in the late 1950s, when a group of artists, writers, and journalists occupied a derelict park café, eventually obtaining the city’s permission to rebuild it in 1959. Architect Werner Hollomey, a member of this group, received the commission to renovate the building in 1960. The open, transparent structure is boldly modern and creates an unexpected accent in the park. Now run by a collective of architects, writers, photographers, musicians, and artists, Forum Stadtpark continues to be strongly engaged in the social scene of Graz.
