Results of the Concept Contest

Published by Budapest Medicinal and Thermal Baths Co., the open secret conceptand design contest targeted the reconstruction and extension of Király Medicinal Baths with the partnership of the Association of Hungarian Architects in organisation. Király Medicinal Baths is the one and only baths complex in Budapest still in operation which was built at the time of the Turkish occupation of Buda and is of international significance today.
