What are the tasks and dilemmas of an architect in times of climate change, why does Arrow Architects from Copenhagen have no projects in Denmark, and above all, how was H2Offices in Budapest born? These topics were discussed by Octogon’s journalist and Ulrik Raysse, one of the founders of the studio that designed the architectural concept of the building.
You can read an excerpt from this interview: “The project articulates our approach to re-greening the city,” wrote Arrow on its Facebook page. But what can one building do for an entire city? Cities are beautiful because they are never finished. We were able to start building the Budapest of the future. Budapest’s heritage is very rich and impressive, telling the story of a prosperous, ambitious, wealthy city, much more so than Copenhagen. It is full of historic buildings, and even if many of them are in poor condition today, you can see that it was once a strong capital. A new part had to be added to such a historical heritage. A building can be important not only for a city, but also for a nation or even a national identity, like the Sydney Opera House, the Eiffel Tower or the Sagrada Familia. This is architecture’s greatest strength. On a smaller scale, we also have a huge responsibility, because with this building we have moved forward in time by twenty years, we have changed the fabric and the identity of the city. The responsibility of architecture is huge, because with every building we take away an opportunity; buildings are designed for decades, and if we don’t take the chance that something good will happen to an area, we have wasted an opportunity, if not forever, then for the lifetime of a few generations.” The full article can be found here.
