Asphalt painting project
name of intervention: Asphalt Painting Project
year of design / realization: 2008
authors: Dominika Tihanyi, Béla Gál, Áron Wass-Eysen
During the Krúdy festival the first public art intervention developed on the site of Palota Quarter was an asphalt painting project. A well-known pattern that used to cover many walls of Budapest was painted on the asphalt surfaces of the streets that were going to be renewed.
The patterns marked out the rehabilitation site so people could actually learn in real space where the changes would arise.
The project also promoted the new name of the quarter: ‘Palotanegyed’ as it was integrated into the paintings.
