House of Music opened in Budapest city park
An unusual music museum has opened in a city park in Budapest. Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto designed the building with glass walls and a roof resembling a mushroom cap. According to his design, visitors to the House of Music should feel like they are in a real forest, which is why the roof's interior is decorated with thousands of ornamental elements resembling leaves. There are also 100 crater windows, through which live trees grow, and sunlight penetrates. Thanks to this solution, not a single tree was damaged during the construction of the building. The effect of the open space is created by the glass façade and thin columns supporting the roof.
The House of Music is part of the ambitious Liget Budapest project, in the framework of which several other museums are planned in the Budapest City Park.
