In the last five years the Műcsarnok has served as the venue for the National Salons, where every year the fresh achievements of a given genre are presented to the public. In 2019 architecture is in focus, with special emphasis on communal force and collective activity, which play an increasing role in architectural space and its creation.
Community building and solidarity in architecture will be a separate thematic unit, and a whole section will be devoted to the activity of the architects of the now legendary Miskolc Architectural Workshop (1977–1990) from the formation of the group to the present day. The exhibition chapter in the Műcsarnok’s apse pays tribute to István Medgyaszay (1877-1959), one of the most important and innovative figures of 20th-century Hungarian architecture. The unit titled “The Silhouettes of the Future” focuses on the life and architectural space of coming generations. An interactive installation by Hello Wood inviting visitors to engage in architectural thinking and “Light Architecture”, aimed at creating the experience of space with immaterial light, can both be seen in one of the side halls.
