Liget Budapest International Design Competition

The Museum of Fine Arts Budapest and the Városliget Zrt., owned by the Hungarian State hereby announce an 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 first round of the competition was announced on February 27 2014, and the deadline for the submission of competitive projects is May 27, 2014.  For all those who are interested in this free, international, two-round, anonymous architectural competition, find the summary and its set of rules at the competition’s official website at: www.ligetbudapest.org

This competition programme was compiled in accordance with the Hungarian legal regulations in force and the guidelines of the Union Internationale des Architectes (UIA).

Theme of Competition:
The two partners, Museum of Fine Arts Budapest and Városliget Zrt. are promoting four separate competitions in the framework of the Liget Budapest International Design Competition to construct the five new buildings, which will house six institutions. There is a competition for the common building of the New National Gallery and the Ludwig Museum of Contemporary Art, the building of the Museum of Ethnography and the Hungarian House of Music, while a joint call was announced for the FotoMuzeum Budapest and the Hungarian Museum of Architecture.

The international design competition forms a part of the Liget Budapest Project aimed at the complex development and renewal of Városliget (City Park). Through the construction of the new museum buildings, the complete renewal and expansion of the park’s green area as well as the reconstruction and development of the institutions already operating there, Városliget will be transformed into one of Budapest’s key tourist and cultural destinations and family event parks, making it known all over Europe.  The planned investment is the largest new museum development project in Europe to date.
