Abandoned Church

Location Library Hungary

My Selection: 0

This extraordinary location is a half-built Bauhaus church surrounded by a forest in one of Buda’s hilly districts. It was envisaged as a modernist pilgrimage destination, inspired by the architecture of the Holy Land. This unique Bauhaus adaptation of a Byzantine basilica has an oval layout and would have had an altar positioned in its centre surrounded by 20 columns, that would have supported a huge dome. But due to the Second World War, the construction work came to a halt and was never finished. The halls located in the lower half of the building were used as a state archive for decades, providing the site with a basic level of infrastructure. Today it is still surrounded by woods and is disused, granting it an eerie atmosphere, unlike any other. This futuristic construction’s striking minimalist and geometric forms provide a huge potential for creating visuals unlike any other.
