Bus Terminal, Budapest

Title

Bus Terminal, Budapest

Description

A new bus station was built on the that time Stalin Square in 1949 designed by István Nyíri. It is one of the most interesting example of modernist architecture in Budapest. It consists of two pavilions connected by covered corridors. The material is reinforced concrete covered with stone slabs. It was not used as a bus station any more in the 1980s, but it was listed as a protected monument in 1977. It took until 2004 to find its new function as a Design Terminal (exhibition space and shop for local designer objects).

It is a pity that there is no Design Terminal anymore, the restaurants mostly aim tourists, the place is not really integrated into local life. Still, it is a beautiful building and it is great that it was not demolished.
