Szervita Square Tower in Budapest, Hungary by ZAHA HADID ARCHITECTS

Saturday, June 9th, 2012


A transparent tower and surrounding public square, Szervita Square moves away from closed forms and perimeter blocks to create a building and urban landscape that is porous, accessible and welcoming. A structure that extends Budapest’s rich architectural heritage, is inherently ‘in context’, yet also marks a radical new approach.

The Great Rock in Budapest, Hungary by PLANT – Atelier Peter Kis

Friday, May 25th, 2012

Article source: PLANT – Atelier Peter Kis

The Great Rock was created during the major reconstruction of the Zoo between 1909 and 1912, based on the specialist instructions of the Zoo Construction Committee in the capital. The zoological tasks were supervised by the director of the zoo at the time, Dr Adolf Lendl, and the construction technology aspects by Dr Kornél Neuschloss. The primary purpose of the artificial rock was to help the Zoo, that already operated on a overly tight area, appear larger and provide greater space. Thus instead of the completely flat area, with the vertical elevation, a divided and at the same time larger surface would be created with the latest and most spectacular animal runs of the time.

‘Dance Floor’ Recreation and Memorial Park in Ronabanya, Hungary by SAGRA Architects

Friday, May 4th, 2012

Article source: SAGRA Architects

The site is situated in the Karancs-Medves landscape area in North-East Hungary. Around and in the city of Salgótarján the memorials, geological and mining attractions are forming a hiking trail. Along this trail is set the „Dance floor” Recreation  and Memorial Park. The site is embraced by the surrounding hills and huge hillside trees. In our architectural concept we aimed to preserve and strengthen this special character of the place. The park would function as an exhibition for the mining memorials and as a natural recreational area. The organising element in the park is a wall providing covered space. This space can be used for exhibitions and performances.  Open air theatre may also function here, the covered space is used for stage and the “Dance floor” as auditorium.

Hotel Balneum in Tiszafüred, Hungary by Ferdinand and Ferdinand Architects (designed using ArchiCAD, Artlantis, and AutoCAD)

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

Article source: Ferdinand and Ferdinand Architects

The idea of the architect was to endow the building with a modern and esthetic  appearance using traditional local materials. That’s why light plaster was selected together with ceramic roof tiles and plenty of wood –  for terraces, for pergolas and for shields. Thanks to the  flood forests  – in this part of the country wood has always been available for building village houses. Willow tree is probably the most characteristic tree of the region,  twigs and branches of willow trees were wickered to create usefull household objects, such as baskets, armchairs, etc. This tradition was continued in the interior decoration of the spa – the reception desk was made of wickered willow tree, as well as the lampshades of suspension lamps and of consoles, and wicked willow branches were used to shape chests of drawers – all that was hand made by local ladies, in accordance with the local patriot attitude of the owner.

The Witness Hills

The Witness Hills illustrate the original height of the previously eroded and weathered area. These hills do not form a chain, but are solitary islands that stand alone preserving a specific stratification that arose from the former Pannon sea. Millions of years ago at the deepest part of the Pannon Sea that covered the Balaton Highland and the entire territory of the country, violent volcanic activity took place.

Diversity Recharged in Szeged, Hungary by AMK+ Studio

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

Article source: AMK+ Studio

We’ve seen many mentionable solutions  for rehabilitation of unfunctional industrial buildings that have lost their original functions. Attaching new functional buildings to their close environment basically determine the new character of the place. Because their industrial origin these types of constructions and their environment – with different designation – have no connection, essentially no question about it. As the place is rehabilitated and gets back to life we can take the question about the method and the mode. The intervention depends on  the actual context, that can be:

1. merge
2. insulate

and situations on a range between them.

In 2006, the Municipality of Budaörs city announced a national competition for the design of its new elementary school with 24 classrooms. Though our proposal won third prize, the contract eventually was given to our office. The competition demanded an extremely elaborate program on a narrow, triangular plot. Besides the 24 classrooms and the necessary field rooms, a fully fitted hot kitchen for the capacity of 500 people, the attached restaurant, a separable gymnasium including 2 basketball fields and changing rooms were to be allocated.
