Situated in the Karancs-Medves landscape area in North-East Hungary, the aim of SAGRA Architects for their design of the ‘Dance Floor’ Recreation and Memorial Park is to preserve and strengthen this special character of the place. The park would function as an exhibition for the mining memorials and as a natural recreational area. Embraced by the surrounding hills and huge hillside trees, the organising element in the park is a wall providing covered space which can be used for exhibitions and performances.

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.
