Modern Architecture: The Black Panther (12 pics)

GS Architects designed this black cantilevered office building in Graz, Austria. MP09 Black Panther is Uniopt Pachleitner Group's new headquarters. The company specializes in eye-wear and jewelery, so the architects wanted to reflect those products, as well as the company's culture and philosophy. The $45 million building also includes a hotel, office space, shop, and restaurant.

"Where design and shape evolve, ideas emerge," says GS Architects. "Elegant and smooth, the 'Black Panther'' composes eagerness and speed to the urban architecture. His watchful eyes attend the street – movement and silhouette merge in the dance of the forces and the night.

"The office-building MP09, named after the owner of the firm, Michael Pachleitner, also called Black Panther, was intended as a landmark to the city-entrance of Graz."
