Japanese architect Su Fujimto's new work is Music Museum with an unusual roof in Budapest, designed to be an extension of the park's natural environment

A new Music Museum, designed by renowned Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto, has recently opened in Budapest. As the author says, he wanted the building to become “an extension of the natural environment” of the park in which it is located. The museum is a glass volume, covered with a huge roof in the form of a sprawling mushroom cap, which is supported by support columns. There are holes in the roof: trees grow through some, sunlight enters through others, blurring the boundary between the interior and the surrounding nature. ” />
The new museum in Budapest tells the history of music over 2000 years. The building has three floors. The basement houses the main exhibition dedicated to European music. On the ground floor, completely glass, there are two concert halls and an interactive installation where you can enjoy 360-degree sound. The last floor of the museum is reserved for a multimedia library and an archive of Hungarian pop music. The museum was built as part of the Liget Budapest project, and the Museum of Ethnography will soon appear next to it.
