Hungarian National Opera House
Tender for the identity design of the Hungarian National Opera House. The building of the Opera House in Budapest is one of the most beautiful classical ones of Europe. As there is no other building for modern operas, client wanted to have an identity that reflects both of these worlds. I have used the letter ‘o’ as a reference to arias, in which I have cut a rectangular box that represents modern contents. The surrounding ‘o’ also refers to the fact that whenever you pass by the building, you can hear artists rehearsing, so there is a constant singing that surrounds the Opera House.
