DEVELOPMENT CONCEPT FOR THE AREA OF THE AMUSEMENT PARK – EXTENSION OF THE BUDAPEST ZOO
The director of the Budapest Zoo invited the first-year students of the MLA programme in Landscape Architecture at the Corvinus University of Budapest to prepare a conceptual design for the development of the zoo. The concept is based on the opportunity that arises when the grounds of the loss-making, closed-down amusement park are handed over to the zoo. The mission of the institution, the three goals of presentation, entertainment and the protection of species, are served by the rearrangement and enlargement of the runs, and by the formulation of new functions and directions of development. The almost six-hectare development area was suggested to give home to a fairy-tale theme park, a farm and a biodome.
The latter would be a world of its own, with the spectacular arched glass roof spanning the entire 1.65-hectare area, providing a single, uninterrupted space.
