METRÓ 3 | budapest, HUNGARY 2018

Line 3 of the METRÓ in Budapest was built in the 70s with the help of the Soviet Union. As the longest of the four underground lines, the M3 crosses the entire city. The M3 is currently being modernized, and half of the line is already under reconstruction. Soon the last traces of Soviet European aesthetics will have disappeared from the cityscape: intense wall colors, playful design elements, dramatic lighting and the sheer space. Together, these elements create an atmospherically dense place full of theatricality and nostalgia.
Although people move in public space, each one seems to be absorbed in his or her own affairs. Intimate situations or curious moments between strangers arise. The Metró becomes a stage in daily life.
