After receiving numerous acclaimed accolades, the House of Music, Hungary has won the Special Jury Award of MIPIM Cannes, the world’s most prestigious real estate exhibition. Popularly dubbed as the real estate sector’s Academy Award, the MIPIM Awards went to a Hungarian development for the first time in its history.  MOME lecturers Antal Bodóczky and Balázs Orlai contributed as visual and experience designers to the development of the music history exhibition recently opened in the building designed by world-famous Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto.

The House of Music, Hungary was given a special award by a jury of 13 international experts based on sustainability, aesthetic and visitor experience considerations. 

The permanent exhibition below ground level is dedicated to universal music history, highlighting major composers, pieces, and accomplishments, as well as the importance of Hungarian folk music. Challenges posed by the creation of the exhibition space has been previously discussed by Antal Bodóczky in an interview. “We started from the premise that picture and sound have always belonged together, or rather, to be more precise, complement each other, bring out each other’s hidden depths. This is why we want visitors entering a specific section of the exhibition to be greeted by an emblematic picture that encapsulates the entire era and the message of the space for them. If this can be done in the first step, successfully capturing the visitor’s attention, the details will easily reveal themselves.” 

By winning the special award of the MIPIM Awards, the House of Music, Hungary has joined the rank of Hungary’s contemporary buildings with the most accolades, and has become one of the most successful Hungarian real estate developments in the international scene.
