About this title


Since the 1960s Hungary has seen the creation of an architecture?of particular charm. Its distinctive, unique formal idiom is fed by a variety of sources. It takes its ideas from a rustic "architecture?without architects".??

Building with natural materials is an essential feature of organic?architecture. Along with bricks, one of the main materials is?wood, which is used not only for the building envelope but also?for structural purposes. Here the architects take recourse to?traditional techniques of the type that have been preserved in?handicrafts. All these elements come together to form an architecture?with a warm and earthy character that encompasses, in addition?to the classic house, technically demanding architectural functions?such as the creation of sports facilities, office buildings, or?churches.?
