Hungary’s controversial Milan Expo pavilion is set to be relocated to Hungary and turned into an equestrian museum.
The pavilion, which is currently being dismantled, is due to be re-erected in the town of Karcag in central Hungary as a museum celebrating the equestrian traditions of the country.
According to Géza Szőcs, the government commissioner for the Expo, a lawsuit filed against Hungary has been dropped by the Italian authorities, allowing for the relocation of the pavilion. The Italian authorities seized the pavilion earlier this month, following a disagreement regarding the settlement of construction costs.
The pavilion became a source of controversy earlier this year, its distinct design drawing criticism both from architects and the general public. Its designers have since disassociated themselves from the building.
