Cathedral designed by architect Imre Makovecz could be built in Budapest

Sunday, November 17, 2013

World famous architect, one of the most prominent representatives of organic architecture Imre Makovecz left behind hundreds of architectural plans.

Earlier, the government decided to preserve Imre Makovecz's works for posterity – the architect died on September 27, 2011. A multilingual monograph describing the works of the Kossuth Prize-winning architect is in preparatory stages.

There are suggestions to designate all buildings designed by the famous architect as a historic heritage. Various agencies currently reviewing all building projects of the architect to decide which one of them worth to be finished.

This will take some time as Makovecz designed nearly five hundred buildings and only approximately, half of them have been completed due to lack of money.

Makovecz's most extravagant building project that he improved throughout the years is the "The Holy Cathedral of Saints and Damned"; he envisioned the location of the cathedral to be in Budapest's Krisztina district. Originally, it was designed as an entry for a contest in 2004. Then, lack of money prevented the project from being completed.

Laszlo Moholy-Nagy - his name is given to the University of Arts - could not return from the Bauhaus where he was a leading person, so it would be nice also to built some of his plans in Hungary...
