“Gomba” on Móricz Zsigmond Circus / Hetedik Műterem Ltd.

Courtesy of

Along with Moszkva square, Móricz Zsigmond circus is a very busy public transportation junction, located in south Buda. With a round art relic in its middle – the Gomba (meaning mushroom because of its form) is a popular public space for people to meet, with several trams and buses intersecting, along with the Metro – subway line 4, presently under construction. The concept by Hetedik Műterem Ltd. was to treat the art relic of József Schall (from 1942) with proper respect but determined courage. At the same time, they redefined the currently closed space structure, to put forward and intensify the presence of the urban public space. More images and architects’ description after the break.

Inspired by the spirit of the place and our time, the first prize winning concept by SAGRA Architects creates a place that is rooted in the original structure of the square but still up-to date. Aiming to strengthen the connections of the square to its surroundings, their main ambitions were to balance the historical and modern elements and connect the existing and new elements of the square in harmony.

Urban Meadow Proposal / Barnabas Laris & Adam Vesztergom

Courtesy of Barnabas Laris &

Barnabas Laris and Adam Vesztergom, in collaboration with Borbala Gyure, Csenge Csontos, Nora Kohalmy and Mark Antal, recently won the first prize in the Main Square of competition for their project, ‘Urban Meadow.’ The forum or main square of Újpalota, which is the second largest micro district of Budapest, is situated exactly in the center of this residential area, at the junction of the main roads. Most inhabitants of this housing estate cross this square day after day. This town square, however, does not have a view which is framed by public buildings. Therefore, a new community building can achieve a remarkable public function as well as a space-forming effect, simultaneously placed moderately as its volume is more solid than the ones of the commercial buildings. More images and their description after the break.

In Progress: Fővám tér Station / Spora Architects

© Tamás Bujnovszky

’s new metro line includes ten stations and will connect South to the center city. Located on the Danube river and currently under construction, Fővám tér Station is part of the first phase of this project. Only a complex structural system could fulfil the requirements emerging from the proximity of the Danube and the given construction site. For that reason, Fővám tér Station station is composed of a cut-and-cover box and tunnels. The complexity of the structure is driven by the need for a new tunnels for the tramline and pedestrians. This new underground station will become a gateway to the historic downtown of .
