HYPE | Weekly program guide



Happy New Year! The holidays are over, we started the new year with fresh energy, maybe even our resolutions will last: we will go to more programs this year, we WILL start working out from now on and we will get new hobbies. We composed this year’s first program guide to support you in all this, featuring modern architecture, a retrospective exhibition, musical underground exhibition opening, Bakelite design fairs, day-starting hatha yoga flow and cool workshops in the spirit of the harmony of the body, the soul and the mind.

András Ferkai: Modern houses and their habitants. I Book launch

András Ferkai is a university professor, architect and architectural historian, specialized in the architecture of the period between the two world wars, and the modern movement in particular. The theme of his new book is the modern housing estate (or experimental housing estate) in Napraforgó utca built in 1931, destined to prove that modern and comfortable homes can also be built on small lots. The building complex at Pasarét is the only one that has been implemented in Hungary, therefore, its curiosity is incontestable. The author presents the history of the housing estate with designs and archive recordings from the time, and he enriches his book with the stories of the families living in the buildings, this way making the publication an exigent and authentic read that can be enjoyed by anyone. The host of the book launch will be architect Tamás Dévényi.

When: January 16, 2020, Thursday, 17:00-18:30

Where: Fuga – Budapest Center of Architecture

“How to take care of your plants” workshop

We recommend a super-useful workshop for the last day of the week in the newly opened Plante Budapest.

On top of it all, you can plant four little plants at the workshop, which you can continue to nurture at home as per your freshly gained knowledge (or the plant guide received at the workshop). You can apply by sending an e-mail to [email protected] until January 16.

When: January 19, 2020, Saturday, 9:00-11:00
