Budapest, Margaret Island, Deer Garden 1996

For the sake of harmony with the environment, but also for practical reasons, these buildings imitate wood-piles: the outer coating of their layered-applied wall structures consists of log slices, letting the structure ventilate this way, fulfilling climatic requirements. The entrance building is tilted outwards, accenting itself through this uncommon gesture. Atmospherical-structural-functional character is dominating here: architecture, in the traditional sense of the word, becomes dissolved, vanishes. There are only forestry wood-piles there. The appropriateness of the tiny wooden buildings is justified by precise details of the structure and fine detail solutions. In this case, it is not about randomness, much more about the accuracy and care of a calculating person, all which is incorporated in the wood-pile approach.
