Museum Quarter Project Taking Shape In Budapest
The jury has rewarded 12 proposals for arranging the new buildings that will constitute the new Museum Quarter in Budapest’s City Park and will put together a master plan from the ideas, ministerial commissioner László Baán announced on Thursday.

Baán, director of both the Szépművészeti Múzeum and the National Gallery, said the purpose of the competition begun in July was to ensure that an international tender be launched for the buildings in late 2013.

Plans call for new buildings to house the New National Gallery, the Ludwig Museum, the Ethnographic Museum, the House of Hungarian Music, the Museum of Photography and a Museum of Architecture.
