BUDAPEST, TRANSPORT MUSEUM COMPETITION 2019
The project can be defined along two themes. According to the first one, the Museum which moves to MÁV's Northern Maintenance Depot, unravels a plot which has been a blind spot of the urban fabric up until now: it needs to be plugged in the infrastructural circuit of the capital respectively formal and substantial characters of the future urban spaces need to be defined. The second theme considers a view which treats the site and its buildings - as their past relate strongly to the Museum's topic - as integral part of the exhibition. As such, the industrial halls of the site are about to house the exhibition- and visitable storage spaces of the museum, presenting a dramatic interior, which guarantees an particular and unique experience. The newly added building parts unfold along the formal logic of the halls present on the site, with minimal addition: aisles between the existing structures and a zeppelin-like floating one above the hall on the museum plaza. On the north facade an iconic section articulates, weaving together old and new, the logic of the hall system condensed in one view.
