Skanska launches outdoor art design tender for H2Offices
Skanska has launched a design tender for the creation of an outdoor piece of art, which will be placed in the publicly available green garden near the first building of H2Offices complex, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
Four design teams participate in the invitation-based tender. The winning project selected by the professional jury is scheduled to be implemented in Q4 2022, simultaneously with the handover of the first phase of the office complex.
The following designers and teams were invited to the tender: S39 Hybrid Design, Andrea Hegedűs Design, Medence Csoport, Paradigma Ariadné.
"H2Offices will be in many ways an innovative and unique office complex. Its placemaking, the large green garden will be available to the general public and we intend to create a visually exciting, iconic, and functional installation that everyone can relate to. We are looking for concepts that are representative for our project, emphasizing as much as possible the connection to the water and nature in general and having the potential to become valuable landmarks of Budapest," says András Ábrahám, project director of Skanska’s commercial development business unit in Hungary.
The applications will be evaluated by a professional jury, consisting of 3 people: member of Hungarian Design Council and editor-in-chief of Elle Decoration magazine Judit Osvárt, cultural officer of Budapest’s District XIII Mayor's Office Gábor Radó, and Skanska' András Ábrahám.
The announcement of the results is scheduled to take place in May, after which the creation and implementation of the selected work will begin.
