    Out of the 168 entries submitted for the international contest for the designs of the House of Music the one now actually realized excelled with its philosophy eliminating the borders between the natural and artificial environment. The Budapest project had to create a functional architecture with utmost respect to its green context which is a protected natural environment. This is exactly what Fujimoto has been specialized in by now. Adjusting to the strict framework of Liget project, he designed the House of Hungarian Music by keeping the above-ground upper three storeys of the five-storey structure beneath the foliage level of the parkland surrounding it. The multi-functional structure doubling as a museum and concert hall is surrounded by entirely transparent large expanses of glazed panels. The upper two storeys are supported by almost invisible slender steel columns. The reception space and the foyer of smaller and larger concert halls are covered with composite „foliages” from where the shop, a restaurant, the cloakroom and the toilets are accessible, and a breathtakingly lightweight and airy spiral staircase takes us up to the top levels. The larger concert hall on the ground-floor has a seating capacity of 320 people, and is equipped with a special machinery to convert it with an elevating auditorium. The lesser hall seats 80-120 people with concert and educational functions. The upper two storeys are pierced by a total of 100 ligh shafts with individual design, with some of them suited to let in natural light in the rooms. Whilst the terrain level is reserved for the performing arts, the spaces closed from natural light house a „dreamworld” in line with the concept of the house: here are the rooms for temporary and permanent exhibitions as well as a „sound-dome” which reflects a unique concept.
