Due to its central position in the park, the House of Music is conceived as if it was a typical bandstand or music pavilion. The three different layers of columns wrapping the building, generate a beautiful transparency effect with lots of depth and openness, making the building blend in with the surrounding landscape of tall trees. The facade of the building is a compelling composition of rhythmic lines and curved openings in different layers, heights and depths, making the building an iconic architectural element in the center of the park. As if it were the repetitive lines of score paper and the soft arches of repeated legatos, the facade of the House of Hungarian Music displays a gentle arrangement of rhythm and variations: an elevation of frozen music that is simultaneously classical and contemporary.
