Magyar Zene Háza, which translates to Hungarian House of Music, is projected to open in 2022. As the name suggests, the building is dedicated to music. The futuristic modern design is coupled with special engineering solutions. The Hungarian music hall will serve three different functions. The building will consist of three storeys which will be separated by design elements and space.
Hello Magyar reports that a 1,000 square-meter interactive exhibition will open next year in Magyar Zene Háza. Now, the finishing touches of the building are in progress. The institution is located in Liget Budapest and aims to introduce visitors, both adults and children, to the world of music.
The new Hungarian music hall has three functions. It will be the place of education, knowledge sharing as well as concerts and music. The concert rooms will be situated at park level. The exhibition areas that do not require natural light will be located underground. The music pedagogy and research rooms will be found upstairs. The building marks the work of Sou Fujimoto, one of the most acknowledged Japanese architects.
“Sou Fujimoto, founder of Sou Fujimoto Architects in Tokyo, does not see nature and the built environment as opposing forces, but seeks to integrate and learn from the environment as much as possible throughout the design process. Most notably, Fujimoto was selected to design the 2013 Serpentine Gallery Pavilion in London, and in 2019, as one of the 23 architects to reinvent Paris.” – writes resite.org. The constructors are currently putting the finishing touches to the new Hungarian music hall. They install the sound sensors and other technical equipment. The building will also feature a unique element called the Hangdóm.
The Hangdóm (Sound Dome) is a truly unparalelelled installation that cannot be found in the same size anywhere else in the world. This iconic feature that resembles a dome or a bell will leave visitors astonished. 31 speakers will ensure the perfect sound quality while images will be projected on the dome in 360 degrees by 8 projectors. The building will host countless remarkable programs. Visitors will be entertained by unique permanent and temporary exhibitions.
The permanent exhibition called Sound Dimensions – Musical Journeys in Space and Time is designed like a labyrinth of music. It will make the visitors feel as if they embarked on a journey in virtual reality during which they can discover almost 3,000 musical excerpts from the last two millennia. The audience can walk through the spacious interior while listening to the best pieces of the European and Hungarian music history in excellent sound quality.
