Lakatlan is a project of Hungarian Contemporary Architecture Centre launched in 2012. Our aim is to find solutions to the emerging problem of vacant properties in our cities. We investigate causes and look for answers in the frame of workshops, lectures, discussions. We launched a community map which invites citizens to upload data about vacant properties in Budapest.
In Lakatlan __Reload! launched in September 2013 we are calling for communal, social and cultural initiatives that need space (a building, a shop, an office, a workshop, a parcel) for their accomplishment. We cooperate with these initiatives and our partners in order to develop the project ideas into sustainable models, and to bring them into those currently vacant spaces that can accommodate them with favorable conditions.
Toltsdujra.hu is a website to communicate with these initiatives.
