NEW MUSEUM OF TRANSPORT WON „MAJOR DEVELOPMENT PROJECT SPECIAL AWARD” ON THE 15th HUNGARIAN MEDIA ARCHITECTURE AWARDS

The new Museum of Tranport has received the special recognition award (“Major Development Project Special Prize”) out of 130 candidate projects at the ceremony in this year’s Hungarian Media Architecture Awards on Friday in Budapest. The Media Architecture Awards is a prestigious award in Hungarian architecture, funded by a consortium of media outlets publishing architectural content and awarded by an international jury. The Award is managed by epiteszforum.hu (“architects’ forum”), the oldest Hungarian online architecture magazine. The ceremony is accompanied by great media and public interest every year. Based on the Hungarian Museum of Transport’s master plan, Diller Scofidio + Renfro designed a museum complex that preserves the industrial heritage and renews the spectacular former Diesel hall of the Hungarian State Railways to function as a museum in the future. The new home of one of Europe's oldest museums of transport will be designed by one of the most renowned architectural studios as a brownfield redevelopment.
