The Zam!

Zamárdi is a village in Hungary Europe with a population of 200 on the shore of Lake Balaton, the largest lake in Central Europe. The building is invested by the local government and built for the local community. It accommodates meetings, smaller venues, as well as concerts, exhibitions and will be open to the public all year round.Since the 1950s, the Balaton area has been a field of architectural innovations and experiments (port facilities, restaurants, etc.) in material use, form and function. This tradition is continued by THE ZAM. It refers with its bubble-shaped mass and metal casing to metal artifacts (pots, trappings, earrings) found near the site in a significant 6th-century (Scythian–age) cemetery. The Scythian–age objects will be showcased in the garden.There is a pleasant view from the roof-top terrace of the single-story building of Lake Balaton, the beach and nearby tennis courts.
