Budapest Design Week launches on Friday with a focus on architecture

“Spaces of Encounter—Architecture and Design” is the title of Budapest Design Week, which kicks off on 7 October. The event, which runs until 16 October, will have side events in several Hungarian cities this year.


How are architecture and design related? How have the spaces of encounter in our everyday lives changed recently and how does this affect our lives and our environment? These are some of the questions that Budapest Design Week (BDW) will tackle between 7 and 16 October. This year’s programs focus on virtual and real, personal and communal meeting spaces. The festival will present architecture and design not as separate fields, but as intertwined, complementary co-disciplines that together can contribute to a more sustainable, inclusive, and liveably built environment.

One of the most popular programs, the Open Studios, will also return: this year, five architectural studios (Bánáti+Hartvig, BORD Architectural Studio, építész stúdió, Hetedik Műterem Ltd., Minusplus) and five architecturally related design studios (Hannabi, Komok, ONYX Műhely, Plydesign, Neongrey) will be open for visitors to explore buildings, give presentations and participate in workshops.

As in previous years, the Hungarian Design Award and the Design Management Award will be presented on the first evening of the event, the 6th. The best entries will be exhibited at the Hungarian Museum of Ethnography. The BDW’s main exhibition, Spaces of Encounter—Architecture and Design, will also be on display. The exhibition will juxtapose architecture and design studios to explore how our personal meeting habits have changed in recent years and how our community spaces have been transformed as a result. During the BDW, DLA architect and curator of this year’s festival and exhibition Ferenc Sebestény will be giving several guided tours of the museum. The event will include a professional conference on 13 October.
