Budapest100 is a unique organic program mobilizing the entire city which was initiated by OSA Archivum and KÉK in 2011. Its ultimate goal is to start a tradition and to draw our attention to the buildings surrounding us and the human values that are around us every day.
The program is a civil urban festival which has an outstanding community building effect by bringing people of different social background and generations closer. Volunteering plays a key role in Budapest100. Apart from participating buildings, it is our volunteers who, by creatively helping to implement the colorful programs and devoting their energies to organization, make the festival a successful event.
The Goldberger-house, home of OSA Archivum, celebrated its 100th birthday in 2011. This gave the idea to celebrate all one-hundred-year old the houses on the 100th day of the year.
Since then, every year a new set of anniversary buildings open their doors, inspiring new joiners and offering colorful programs. In 2013 the event broadened with extra programs such as travelling by a nostalgic tram, discount taxi rides, and discovering the hidden treasures of Budapest with the help of a smart phone application.
