The new building has to be exemplary for the regeneration of a historical park area such as the City Park and create an aesthetical experience to the visitors at the highest level of the 21st century in regard to the museum, expressing the collaboration between the Museum of Fine Arts Budapest, the New National Gallery and the Ludwig Museum of Contemporary Art.
At daytime the building is a natural element in the park, while at night, it reveals all its activity.
The new museum building should be conceived as a machine. The outcome should be that the building makes a continuous change of artwork possible, not only in all the exhibition areas, but also the design of parallel narratives or empathic surfaces at the intersection points of the exhibition halls. Especially the floor that connects the building with the park, in the form of an open plan, should allow maximum freedom of usability and architectural flexibility of the spaces.
The new shared building should demonstrate to the visitors, tourists and inhabitants of Budapest that it is possible to create a place where all social layers are accepted, and that it is open to the issues of the modern age and a venue for public social discourse.
The museum proposal should convey the image of a dynamic and open institution that preserves with respect and interprets the artifacts assigned to it. We favor to make it possible in our design that the building is very inviting towards the most diverse range of people.
In direct relation with the main street we position the activity street which will consist of the lobby spaces of both of the museums in direct connection with the biggest event halls.
