Budapest was a completely different city before and after each world war. The destruction and neglect were significant, with many beautiful buildings destroyed or transformed. At the same time, innovation was integral to reconstruction.
Organised by the Hungarian Contemporary Architecture Centre KÉK, volunteers and enthusiastic locals, Budapest100 2021 will involve houses built or rebuilt between 1921-1930 and 1945-1957. A long time in planning, the theme actually concerns three redesigns: post-1918, post-1945 and after the 1956 Revolution. Moreover, the date of next year's event is no coincidence: 8 May marks the end of World War II in Europe and 9 May is Europe Day.
