construction on sou fujimoto's budapest music venue set to start

in late 2014, plans were presented for an ambitious new museum complex in hungary. among the architects chosen as part of ‘liget budapest’ was sou fujimoto, who was tasked with designing the site’s ‘house of hungarian music’. conceived as a community space for the city, the building will host concerts and exhibitions as well as educational classes and workshops. now, three and half years after the scheme was first selected, construction is finally set to get underway.

sou fujimoto’s design for the project features an undulating and perforated roof, where individual voids bring light into gallery spaces below. the greenery of the adjacent parkland is continued beneath the shelter of the canopy, allowing visitors to establish a close connection with the surrounding natural environment. the ‘house of hungarian music’ will serve as a permanent representation of musical history, with a wide range of exhibitions and performances.

the ‘house of hungarian music’ will eventually be joined by other significant buildings as part of the same development. designed by SANAA, the new national gallery will exhibit artworks from the 19th century to the present day, while the city’s popular transport museum, will be fundamentally renewed by mérték architectural studio. read more about the liget budapest masterplan here.
