Csontvary Museum

It was my intention for the museum and Csontvary's heritage - also according to his own last will - to locate the museum in a good accessible but natural spot in Budapest - that can be reached easily by everybody, also by wheelchairs or with prams. I found the right site on the Normafa hilltop, where the ridge of the mountain is missing so there is no view now. Inspired by the 'genius loci', the building would be the missing ridge. As there is already an abandoned parking place on the spot – it wouldn't be necessary to cut any trees for the building.

Award-Winning Architectural Design, 2016
In view of the site selection, the harmony of the works of art and the exhibition halls, the exhibition conception of oeuvre, the jury has bought the project.

Special Award of Concrete Architecture (Beton.hu), Budapest, 2017
The jury's reasoning: An outstanding, brilliant idea, the plan was made with amazing and simple tools. The creator takes advantage character of site and creates a special sense of space at the same time. Architecturally, its interior and exterior are fantastic. Indeed, it would be a truly unique place suitable for the Csontvary exhibition, as its creations require different size halls. Presenting the paintings and the entire dramaturgy of the exhibition, the internal operations - as they guide the visitors - are novel, poetic, exciting and interesting.
