Budapest (MTI) – Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto, who has been chosen to design the House of Hungarian Music under Hungary’s large-scale museum development project, will pay a visit to Budapest next week, the government commissioner in charge of the project said.
Fujimoto was named the “Architecture Innovator of the Year” by The Wall Street Journal newspaper in 2014, Laszlo Baan told public news channel M1.
He has designed a fantastic building winning inspiration from music which will be absolutely unique “not only in what it will look like on the outside, but what it will contain inside,” said Baan.
It will be an oval-shaped glass structure with a cloud-like roof and exhibition spaces and a smaller concert hall installed underneath, he said.
The museum is part of the Liget Budapest project that involves setting up another four museums for fine arts, architecture, ethnography and photography in City Park. It is planned for opening to the public in the spring of 2018.
