so many hens....

To be honest…. I am a bit shocked by these numbers. In 2012, 73 million chicken where slaughterd in Austria alone. That’s almost 10 times the population of the country…. and 8 mio male chicken got sorted out for not laying eggs. I am not the vegetarian here telling you what’s right and what’s not. Figure out yourself…. I’m more overwhelmed by these numbers.

Budapest.

Yesterday, I got back from two great days in Budapest. I was invited to give two lectures on the issue on temporary use in general and especially on the situation in Vienna. In the morning, it was for course at university which is currently developing a strategy for temporary use in Budapest, something the city needs desperately if you look at how many shops and flats are empty in pretty nice locations. Apparently, the chief architect of Budapest is also very interested and what this class is doing so chances are that this study is going to have an impact as well.

In the evening, the lecture took place at  Müszi (http://muszi.org), which is a great initiative to offer relatively cheap working space to artists, architects and other people who are seeking for space. It is located on the third floor on a department store. So, there are also escalators going from the part of department store which is still in use to this floor. The whole thing is massive, I think i heard something about 2,800sqm. It is one of the nicest project for co-working i have seen. They opened some weeks ago and some corners still have to be adapted.

Levente, who was the host for my stay showed me some great places in the neighbourhood. I thought I knew Budapest pretty well but there are so many small, charming cafes and places you would probably not consider going in if you just pass my accident. Yesterday, after having a very short night since we went to a party of the Design week which is currently happening, and having a bad sleep because the rain was hitting the roof window of my room really loudly, I went for a long walk which brought me again to Gellérthegy from where you probably have the best view over the city. So I had two great days there… and Budapest is still one of my favourite cities to go without getting boring. It was the fourth time for me there in the last year only… but I’m sure the next trip is already around the corner.

and a picture from Gellérthegy:
