Liget Budapest is one of the major museum development projects in Europe, including full renovation of the green area of Városliget (City Park) and construction of several new museum buildings (New National Gallery, Museum of Ethnography, the House of Hungarian Music, Hungarian Museum of Technology and Transport). It also has other related program elements, such as the National Museum Restoration and Storage Centre and the Fort Monostor of Komárom.
Established in the 1810s, the City Park was the first urban public park in the world that was created on the territory of, and also financed by, a city. The City Park is one of the most significant green areas of Budapest that has a vital importance as a venue for the leisure time and recreational activities of the capital’s residents. Its reconstruction is among the priority tasks of the project.
Upon closure of the ideas competition related to the Liget Budapest project, Óbuda Group was awarded the commission for preparing and managing the international architectural design competition. Incorporating the announcement of four independent competitions, the commission posed a particular challenge on account of the special function, the international nature, and the volume.
Moreover, lead by Óbuda-Újlak Zrt and with Főber Zrt, Liget Mérnök Konzorcium is in charge of a portfolio, planning, organization and operations management, project management, construction supervision, and BIM coordination.
The environmental awareness of the project is shown by the use of renewable energy, rainwater and grey water as well as the international BREEAM certification of Városliget and the new museum buildings, a process in which the certification tasks are carried out by our company.
