Liget Budapest International Design Competition – almost half a thousand entries


A remarkable five hundred applications were submitted for the open, international, two-stage design competition for the design of museum buildings within the framework of the Liget Budapest Project on the territory of the City Park Budapest.

The Museum of Fine Arts Budapest and the Városliget Zrt. announced the design competitions in February. Separate competitions had been announced for the buildings of the New National Gallery – Ludwig Museum of Contemporary Art, the Museum of Ethnography, and the Hungarian House of Music, while a joint call was put in for FotoMuzeum Budapest and the Hungarian Museum of Architecture. This is the first truly open, international, architectural design competition in one hundred years in Hungary.
