Nemzeti Színház / National Theatre in Budapest

The construction of the National Theatre, on the basis of plans by architect Mária Siklós, began on 14 September 2000, and after a construction process of record-breaking speed, was completed in a little over 15 months.

The area in front of the theatre’s main entrance stretches like a ship into an artificially constructed expanse of water – water that can interpreted as an extension of the Danube. The entrance can be reached via a pontoon-bridge, the equivalent of the ramp with two rails found in large traditional theatres. The silhouette of the upper façade of the old National Theatre at Blaha Lujza square can be seen lying in the water in front of the ship’s bow.
