I spent some time during my lat day at Budapest in Graphisoft Park, and technology park on the outskirts of the city. It was developed by Gabor Bojar, the founder of Graphisoft, first as a home for the company, and then as space for other tech companies: Microsoft, Apple, SAP, Canon, and now a couple biotech companies have buildings there.

The new biotech buildings are especially interesting from a purely architectural standpoint. It has some echoes of one of Mies van der Rohe’s buildings, and I think the main entrance resembles Corbusier’s church at Ronchamp. Anyway, it’s a great space.

The site is on what was a glass factory, and there are still some very cool old buildings on the outskirts of the site. There’s a clock tower that looks like something designed when the architect had gone slightly mad.

It also has a nice view of the Danube.
