Around fifty old buildings in Budapest will be open this weekend to visitors as a part of an initiative by the OSA Archives and contemporary Architecture Centre to give the public access to the 100 year old buildings.

The 100 year old buildings will be open on April 9 and April 10. April 10 is the 100th day of the year, OSA said on wednesday. The buildings that will be open are amoung others the Goldberger House, the OSA headquarters in Arany Janos Street in Budapest. A school in Varosmajor Street will also be open, this building was designed by the architect Karoly Kos in Art Noveau style. According to OSA the project aims to add a new event to the calendar of Budapest.; the annual public celebration of the buildings that reach 100 years old in that year. OSA said that this centenary event will give residents living in the buildings the opportunity to get to know each other and the often hidden treasures in their house. Most of the buildings in the project are residential, but there are also schools, clinics, water towers, museums and more on the plan.
