Liget 2014 - Two museums in Budapest

Two identical, specular structures make up the perfect doorway to the park. The pure shape and the essential, modern design are defined by the natural light's contrasts on the clear surfaces. The two buildings' internal layout is independent from the exterior.In the Museum of Photography the internal layout is organized on two levels, around a large lengthwise distribution patio and a large volume that takes the whole height. This element solves the issues of natural climate control inside the building and of horizontal and vertical distribution.In the Museum of Architecture the internal layout is organized on three levels, following a stricter geometric system linked to a large central distribution space that takes the whole height, with two crossed stairways and a battery of elevators divided into visitors and staff service. This internal space solves the issues of natural climate control inside the building and of horizontal and vertical distribution.
