THE NEW HUNGARIAN MUSEUM OF TRANSPORT IN BUDAPEST
Press release 28 February 2019, Budapest The results of the international design competition for the new Hungarian Museum of Transport were announced today. The event was held in the abandoned former railway maintenance depot of the Hungarian State Railways in Budapest where the museum will be relocated. Thirteen Hungarian and international architectural firms submitted entries in the second round of the two-stage competition launched last August. The proposals were assessed by an eighteen-member international jury. As part of the award ceremony Mr. István Tarlós, the Mayor of Budapest and Director General Mr. Dávid Vitézy, the chair of the jury awarded the prizes to the winners. The winner of the competition is Diller Scofidio + Renfro. The world-famous American firm has designed numerous significant public buildings, including museums worldwide in the past decades. One of their most famous works is the New York High Line, the conversion of an abandoned industrial railway line to a highly popular public park and cultural venue. Diller Scofidio + Renfro’s design for the Hungarian Museum of Transport preserves the industrial heritage and renews the spectacular former Diesel hall of the Hungarian State Railways to function as a museum in the future.
