The silent rhetorician

An outstandingly proportianote colonnade being  a symbol of a sacred place. The plan had been awarded by second place on the ‘Core of Budakalász 2018’ competition.

 

 

"The strictly edited, outstandingly proportionate anachronistic colonnade of Bódi Gergely Gergő simultaneously refers to the eternity and power of the past. It encourages remembering and contemplating while with its ascetic and inornate appearance it shows us the true scale of human existence." (Móré Levente)

"The competition entry is tightly written, though it paints a powerful picture. The model has a "dramatic" power. By get to know the plan, it aims to salute the past respectfully, by creating something that marks the power that is already present and highlights the value of the place.

The colonnade, with its horizontal architectural forces, organizes the top of the hill. The plan both urges on further contemplation and creates a solemn space. The dimensions of the
colonnade are just impeccable." (Jury of the competition)
