The Museum of Ethnography's new building in Budapest will be the focal point of the Hungarian national pavilion's exhibition for the 18th Venice Architecture Biennale, the organizers said at a press conference this week, according to conservative daily Magyar Nemzet.

The exhibition, dubbed "Reziduum: The Frequency of Architecture," highlights the ornamentation, "built on traditions," that decorates the building, Deputy State Secretary for Public Collections and Cultural Development Máté Vincze said.

Julia Fabényi, the government commissioner for the exhibition and the director of the organizer, the Ludwig Museum, acknowledged the cooperative support of the Museum of Ethnography and the Liget Budapest project in putting the show together.

The building's curved wings rise out of the ground at the entrance to Budapest's City Park, and its glass facade is covered with a metal grid filled with pixels depicting ethnographic motifs from the museum's collections.
