“Dance floor” Recreation and Memorial Park | Ronabanya Hungary | SAGRA Architects

Dance floor Recreation and Memorial Park | Ronabanya Hungary | SAGRA Architects
The site is situated in the Karancs-Medves landscape area in North-East Hungary. Around and in the city of Salgótarján the memorials, geological and mining attractions are forming a hiking trail. Along this trail is set the “Dance floor” Recreation  and Memorial Park. The site is embraced by the surrounding hills and huge hillside trees. In our architectural concept we aimed to preserve and strengthen this special character of the place. The park would function as an exhibition for the mining memorials and as a natural recreational area. The organising element in the park is a wall providing covered space. This space can be used for exhibitions and performances.  Open air theatre may also function here, the covered space is used for stage and the “Dance floor” as auditorium.
