Liget Budapest Museum of Ethnography

Liget Budapest Museum of EthnographyThe Museum of Ethnography in Budapest is conceived as a confluence of the park and the city- the nature and the architecture- Bookending the promenade along Dózsa György út, the building allow public life to follow through it. The urban pavement, starting from The Museum of Fine Art and passing by the Hero Square, rises to become a pocket of terrace overlooking the park and elevating an outdoor gallery above the city.

On a special occasions it will turn into an urban stage for an outdoor performance to extend the art into the city as well as the city into the architecture.
