After having tied with Snøhetta in a restricted competition to design the New National Gallery -- Ludwig Museum in Budapest, SANAA’s proposal has ultimately been selected as the winner, following negotiations held over the past few months. The gallery and museum will be located in the 200-year-old Városliget (City Park) and are part of the larger Liget Budapest project, which seeks to revive the park by 2018 with the addition of five new museum buildings, including Sou Fujimoto’s House of Hungarian Music.

The New National Gallery will host “the largest domestic collection documenting and surveying the development of Hungarian and international fine arts,” featuring art collections between 1800 and 1950, while the Ludwig Museum will be devoted to contemporary art. The two will be housed under the same roof, yet operate independently.
