Museum of Ethnography

Budapest, Hungaria 2014

Architect: Studio Touraine

Client: Liget Budapest

Program: National Museum of Ethnography

This competition was asking for the development of 5 museographic buildings in a large Budapest park. The project located at the corner of the park was sheltering a Museum of Ethnography. We proposed a simple volume with a structural exoskeleton following the patterns of the first Hungarian alphabet. This system is both the structure of the building and a shading system for the museum. The exoskeleton also allows for flexibility of use of the interior space by freeing it of columns.
