According to the plan of Lépték-Terv Tájépítész Iroda, the Town Hall Park will be renewed. The decision was made by a jury made up of landscape architects, urban architect members and experts. The winning entry is suitable to be the newest main square in Budapest in all respects. The new capital square could be the venue for many political and cultural events as well. In addition, the new plan takes into account the current transport conditions in the capital.
The winning entry is completely unique, and that is why it is genius. They transformed the available space into a flexible square. The concentrically arranged park-space hybrid is completely different from the monopoly of conventional paving.
The space will play many functions in the life of Budapest.
You will have the opportunity to watch a sport match, do yoga, play, go to cinema, or even hold trade fairs. Thousands of people can go to a music concert here. Varoshazapark.budapest.hu writes that in order to achieve this, an unorthodox method had to be chosen. The central element of the new park is a circle.
The 90-metre diameter circle symbolizes connection and equality.
The circle comes from the coordination of different functions. The first shell of the green circle is a wider lane with benches, seating, and even swings and steam gates. There are also water games and various blinds. The second layer is a wooded, paved public shell.
The second layer will be the venue for the events.
It was also beneficial for the plans that the Lépték-Terv Tájépítészeti Iroda also took into account the vertical shape of the park, they write on their Facebook page. “The facade in the new situation must be adapted to its new function, on the one hand the ground floor must be opened to urban life, the green public space, and on the other hand the facade must reflect the advanced, contemporary approach of the Town Hall.”
A beautiful modern park with lots of green space will be a refreshment for city dwellers and tourists alike.
The other drastic change compared to previous conditions is the opening of the inner courtyards of the Town Hall. During this time, this area will be flooded, which will be complete with an arched doorway. Much of the work is yet to come. The next step is to prepare and obtain permitting and construction plans. After that, construction can begin.
City Hall Park is expected to be completed in 2004.
