Out of the Blue: Dynamic Liquid Crystal Windows

From cutting down on carbon emissions and maximising energy efficiency to enhancing the health and well-being of a buildings’ occupants, the latest ‘smart glass’ and ‘dynamic glazing’ solutions offer unparalleled opportunities. Designed to meet, if not exceed, standards for low and zero-emission buildings, Dynamic Liquid Crystal Windows by Eyrise provide the opportunity to minimise the need for artificial heating and cooling by optimising the use of that generated naturally.

Planned to be built on nearly 7ha site between Bosnyák Square and Rákos Creek, the new centre in Zugló will be developed in phases by Bayer Construct Group.

The construction of the project is scheduled to start in 2022, with completion planned for 2029.

The project will feature new civic spaces together with restaurants and cafes, shops, apartments, offices, a new medical clinic and a town hall. It will also have a network of interconnected gardens and plazas.

Zaha Hadid Architects director Gianluca Racana said: “It is a great honour for us to have won the architectural design tender for the development of Zugló City Centre. The project will create one of the greenest and most sustainable neighbourhoods on the Pest side of the capital.

“The new city centre, organically linked to the surrounding area and Rákos Creek, will equally offer residential, office, commercial and leisure services which will form a harmonious whole with the large green areas and community spaces that will be created.

“The complex development will also pay tribute to the architecture, culture and history of the beautiful capital, Budapest, while paving the way for the future with state-of-the-art solutions.”

Feature insulating green roofs, Zugló City Centre will be built to reduce energy consumption and emissions. It will also allow for the collection, storage and reuse of 90,000m³ of rainwater annually.

To help naturally regulate temperatures within the centre, the project will include nearly 35,000m² of communal green space, shade trees and ponds.

It will also feature a smart systems-controlled centralised plant that will be powered by green energy to reduce energy consumption.

Encouraging urban micro-mobility, the project will also have extensive pedestrian zones and new bike paths.

Landscape designers LAND Italia said: “The project looks at the surrounding ecosystems, integrating the future developments of the Zugló district and Budapest city to develop a strong bond with the renaturalisation of Rákos Creek, enhancing biodiversity and establishing a comprehensive natural ecosystem facilitating ecological connectivity with the broader landscapes.

“The new district envisions a ‘green spine’ as the natural backbone of the development which provides a smooth transition from an urban plaza to a natural park, creating liveable spaces designed according to the users’ needs throughout the year with the intent of reconnecting people with nature.”
