The aim of the competition is to select a team, who

  • are sensitive to an inspiring, visitor-focused presentation of technical heritage and innovation; 
  • view the location and the built structures as a resource for creative action; 
  • can mobilise a complex range of expertise; 
  • have experience in architectural design and exhibition design duties; 
  • have the ambition to create a world class architectural complex; 
  • are motivated to participate in establishing a new, leading, innovative institution.

The Competition Jury will consist of internationally renowned architects, museum leaders and professionals, the delegates of the Hungarian Government, who finances the project, the City of Budapest and other professional representatives. The Museum intends to sign a contract with the winning entry’s authors for the full planning process, including concept, permission and construction plans.

Miklós Mártonffy

architect, Head of the Urban Planning Department of the Municipality of Budapest

Introduction

I was born in Budapest in 1959, I’m married and father of two children. I obtained an MSc in Architecture in 1984 at the Faculty of Architecture of BME and then I obtained the Degree in Engineering in 1997. I worked at several design companies, since 1993 I have been working in our own company as an architect and settlement designer, the Marius Stúdió Ltd. founded together with my wife. From 2013 I have been working as the Chief Architect of the XVIII. district of Budapest, from 2016 I work as the Chief Architect of Budapest. 

As an architect, I’m primarily interested in the relationships of the sphere, almost irrespectively of the scale. The basic paradox of architecture is that all our activities are directed at the (inanimate or living) material, their arrangement, but what we really want to create is the space, the bounded space, nothing that does not mean absence of something but on the contrary something inconceivable sensible presence. And this is the nothing and the quality of this nothing interests me. And something that perhaps is more important than anything else, in the space that becomes space-sphere, the man who wants to create it can enjoy himself as he was at home.
