The design for Hungary’s new Ethnographic Museum, part of the Liget Project in Budapest, has been awarded the prize for the best public service architecture in Europe at the International Property Awards held in London.
The award was presented on Monday evening to Benedek Gyorgyevics, Managing Director of Városliget Zrt, which is responsible for implementing Liget Budapest.
Judged by the world’s top eighty international experts, the award was an important recognition of a public investment, Gyorgyevics said. The prize, he added, is a commendation not only of Hungarian architecture but of Hungarian innovation and culture, too.
The new Ethnographic Museum, designed by architecture firm NAPUR, will be located in Budapest’s Liget, one of the oldest public parks in Europe.
