Hungary’s House of Music Among Time Out’s ‘Best New Things’
Visiting the House of Music — a tribute to Hungarian musicians who have made their mark on the world — is runner-up on Time Out magazine’s list of “best new things to do in the world in 2022”, project company Városliget said.
Time Out calls the House of Music, designed by Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto, “the standout initiative” of the Liget Budapest project which aims to rehabilitate the capital’s City Park and transform it into a museum island.Related article

After three years of construction, the House of Hungarian Music was handed over in Budapest’s City Park. It will open its doors on January 22, 2022, on the Day of Hungarian Culture.
“Opening in early 2022, Sou Fujimoto’s House of Music, Hungary in City Park features a roof perforated with 100 or so cavities that allow natural light, trees and sound to infiltrate the two performance venues, exhibition spaces and library, which are linked by magnificent spiral staircases, and a complete glass exterior to aid reliance on renewable energy,” Time Out said.
