BUDAPEST.- Competition winners for the masterplan of Liget Budapest were announced today at the Museum of Fine Arts. As part of the project, the Hungarian Government plans to erect five new museum buildings in the forthcoming years in Budapest’s oldest public park, Városliget (City Park), also designated for complete reconstruction. László Baán, head of the museum and government commissioner of Liget Budapest says that as a result of the competition Városliget, already a favoured destination for Budapest families and tourists, is becoming one of the most important recreational and cultural hubs in Europe. A call for an international architectural design competition is to be published in January 2014, based on the results of the present idea competition, with the cooperation of the International Union of Architects (UIA).

The idea competition was announced in July 2013, with the partial aim of finding the right spatial solutions for the planned five buildings in Városliget, prominently at Ötvenhatosok tere, which was created in the 1950ies for the marches and rallies of the Communist state. Suggestions for maintaining and renovating the historical spatial connections in the park, ideas for new contemporary uses, and recommendations to improve ecological integrity, impact and overall conditions in the presently neglected Városliget were also welcomed.

From the 47 works that arrived, the Jury awarded 12 with a sum of 20 Million HUFs. László Baán, Chief Architect of the State Ervin Nagy, Chief Architect of Budapest Finta Sándor, György Fekete, President of the Hungarian Academy of Arts and Project Director of Liget Budapest Zoltán Rostás were among the members of the Jury of 11.

In the final report the Jury suggested to merge the several innovative and progressive elements of the best works in the final Master Plan, first of all the 1st and 2nd winners, both of which were divided among three works. Anther important proposition of the Jury is to finalize urban design and landscape architecture in cooperation of the winners of the forthcoming architectural design competition.
