    Church, city hall, market place – the centre of a city can hardly do without these classic facilities. They are also independent points of reference that come together to represent the community’s potentials, intentions and conditions. In this approach, St Stephen’s Square in Újpest reflected the image of a community fostering the past. However, it turned out that purely the building reconstructions and the construction of new blocks are not enough here: the square is worth and has to be treated as a sacred site, a unique fabric of community and commerce within the framework of a comprehensive urban development concept. Zoltán Bun architect and his fellows worked out a scheme defined by the banning of motor traffic behind the old market place so as to integrate it with the square. By moving the most significant components of logistics beneath the site level, they let the building to be possessed by people, commodities and experiences from the ground floor to the exterior roof garden of the events zone. This transparent house featuring clear and light spatial relations, visible structures (monochrome concrete and steel structures, trapezoid sheets and glass) comprises two parts. The southern half is divided by a gallery, and contains the market hall with appr. 170 stands for sales and 60 commodity units, whilst the northern is the events centre taking up the upper floors also approachable from the hall. The concept of housing „two functions beneath one roof” guarantees an economically well-balanced operation for the building, whilst integration makes it an active part of St Stephen’s Square as a site for events, and it also associates the genre of a market with new meanings without stripping it of former interpretations.
