Premier Plan

At the request of the Hungarian National Museum KÉK organized two debates to discuss the competition entitled the “Complex development of the main building of the National Museum and its surrounding area”. The first evening focused on the competition process and the awarded plans. The second evening addressed the winning plan, its further development opportunities and limitations. The discussions provided an insight into the decision making process and into the complexity of the sixty three submitted plans.
