Given the perhaps overly emblematic plans to be implemented in the Városliget and its catchment area, it is really reassuring to see the moderate professionalism of the OMRRK complex: here everything is exactly what it seems to be.
First of all, the program itself must be emphasized with the innovation inherent in it, defining an internationally significant museum center, which, in addition to high-quality spaces for centralized storage and restoration, also provides space for art theory research. Another virtue of the project is the way it treats the site and its built heritage. After careful analysis, the most valuable buildings of the former Jewish Hospital in Szabolcs utca, designed by Vilmos Freund, were not only kept, but, for example, with the reconstruction of the previous, sometimes brutal layers of usage, the renewed space of the former house of prayer gave the whole ensemble an outstandingly strong architectural character. The main building carries the best traditions of the industrial-technological architecture of Hungary, it is enough to mention the consistency of the spatial structure. At the same time, the façade design refines the house’s character into a demanding public building in a way worthy of the institution’s complex function and significance. The OMRRK ensemble is perhaps one of the most important cultural investment projects of recent decades, in which the client's intentions and the architect's professional, integrative and proactive approach have created unique values.
