SANAA’s proposal is a building the roof of which is comprised of several overlapping curved planes which, according to the architects, will function as an extension of the park. This will facilitate a connection with the adjacent Sou Fujimoto-designed House of Hungarian Music, photography museum FotoMuzeum Budapest and the Hungarian Museum of Architecture by KÖZTI Architects & Engineers and the Museum of Ethnography by Vallet de Martinis DIID Architectes.

“Ours is a contemporary form of public space – one where city, gardens and exhibition rooms become part of an experiential whole,” SANAA co-founders Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa described the project. “It is a museum that fluctuates with seasonal shifts.”

A new competition for the re-landscaping of the surrounding park area, expected to extend the park’s green surfaces by five per cent, will launch in December.
