The design of Japanese star architect Sou Fujimoto was chosen from 168 entries in an open competition back in 2014.
The Deputy Chief Technical Officer of Városliget Zrt., Attila Sághi, said:
As Sághi implied, it truly was a difficult task: in the lobby alone, there are at least thirty technical solutions that are unprecedented in the region. In spite of it being a demanding challenge, the builders carried it out perfectly.
As Portfolio reported, András Batta (Managing Director of the House of Hungarian Music) said that.
The exhibition called “Sound Dimensions – Musical Journeys in Space and Time” covers 1,000 square metres.
Batta also shared that the House of Hungarian Music will play a multifunctional role. It will provide a home for concerts and community music-making, with an emphasis on music education.
Apart from the exhibition, another big attraction is the sound dome. It is a dome-shaped space with a screen stretched around it. In addition to the spectacle, more than 30 loudspeakers provide the sounds around us: a wide range of sound effects, from nature sounds to composed music.
The House of Hungarian Music was built as part of the Liget Budapest project, next to the City Park lake near Vajdahunyad Castle. The cost of the building is also astonishing: it cost 18.5 billion forints (almost 41 million euros).
