MONO is lifestyle retail, gallery, and events space concept located in the heart of Budapest, Hungary. My task was to raise attention for the store’s summer sales. I designed an aquarium from the store’s huge glass windows that now hang out on the street.

Bálna (formerly known as CET / Central European Time). Bálna is also a synonym for a whale. The Mixed Use Development Bálna at the Közraktárak between the Petofi and the Szabadság Bridge is both. The Bálna concept refers to Budapest as an important metropolitan centre in the heart of Central Europe. The Bálna shape refers to the smooth and friendly streamlined body of a whale. The new Bálna development has the potential to put Budapest once again on the map of the world. Name and shape of the Bálna symbolizes its cultural potential and commercial pole position in one of the best preserved cities in the world.

“Their houses are massive but light and not forceful and scholar. They are not humorous but spreading serenity. … We can openly turn to these buildings and we can bite of them as much as we want, our eyes can eat a lot and appetite of our imagination comes as well.”[i]

The sunny side of the TOTEM
The Villa with two flats is situated on the slope of Márton Hill in Budapest.
The area of each flat is 350 square meters, there is a cellar, groundfloor, firstfloor and loft. The building itself has definitely two fronts. Tradition and modernism are integrated as a „body sculpture”. While in the north side, along the street, pitched roof geometry caracteristic of the Carpatian Basin is revealed, in the south, garden side completely modern structure opened up for the eye.

Visegrád, with its 1800 inhabitants, is considered to be the smallest town of Hungary. The development of the town center is a fine example for how the original exaggerating ideas were altered due to the economic crisis – besides its negative effects – and facilitated the birth of a sustainable development, satisfying the continuous needs of the local community and the temporary demands of tourism.

Minimalist design meets everlasting intellectual values. Temple of books shaped into a long brick house in the side of the Big-Proud Peak, Hungary, from Foldes Architects
The project initiated by an intellectual couple, had a clear starting point, as highlighted to architects Laszlo Foldes and Peter Sonicz: “We own a length of books something like 100 meters”. The owners of the site had found the best location to retire from work and the noise of Budapest in a rich natural environment, at the side of the Big-Proud Peak.

The elitist school of Bauhaus marked by the name of Mies van de Rohe appeared in Hungary at the end of the 1930s. The emerging intellectuals of the era were sensitive to the values represented by Mies. Unfortunately, World War II and the following political changes did not favor this particular architectural style characterized by industrial aesthetics and eventually it disappeared from Eastern Europe.

Budapest is often called the Queen of the Danube: the most characteristic feature of its bank-side scenery is the Buda Castle, which has been subject to major reconstruction works in recent times. An important stepping-stone in this process is the revival of the Castle Garden Bazaar (Várkert Bazár), wedged between the castle and the river: the stunning complex originally consisted of a Neo-Renaissance garden, the castle walls and 19th century buildings.

Mill Kopácsy is located at the most beautiful area of Veszprém, in the valley of stream Séd.
1.The history of the building’s architecture
Where the current mill takes its place there probably had been one already in the middle ages.
The first report that proves the earliest existence of the mill is from 1765, which we found in the protocol of the city, Veszprém. There is also a note about the building in a fifteen years younger map. We also know that its name was already Kopácsy in the 1830’s, and that it had three water-wheels. There is also a map from 1857 which contains the mill, but the L figured building does not have yet some parts we know nowadays, because they were built later on. In the 1950s the building was socialized and private homes were settled in the main building and the outhouses as well. Then, in the 1980’s, the building was used as a tailoring and as a locker. Because the appliances were heavy, the wooden frame was enforced with steel, so that it became strong enough. After the tailoring had been given up the building was standing being empty and rusty for a pretty long term.
The building’s frontage which faces the street is classicist. The other fronts of it are simple plastered walls, with some scattered windows on them, and the building has the signs that it was rebuilt more times.

SPARK presents its proposal for the Hungarian Museum of Architecture and the Fotomuzeum Budapest – an entry to a competition held this year under the framework of the Liget Budapest project. SPARK’s proposal imagines two complementary sculptural buildings that appear to react to each other as well asto an existing memorial monument, while also retaining their own distinct identities and values.
