Another building by Ödön Lechner

This is a very famous villa that looks like it could stand a bit of restoration. It currently houses some institute for the blind.

This was designed by the famous Hungarian architect Ödön Lechner in the Secession style, a variation of Art Nouveau that incorporates elements of Hungarian folk art and which he sought to make the Hungarian national style. Masterpieces by Lechner include the Geology Institute http://www.pbase.com/helenpb/image/130482111, the Postal Savings Bank http://www.pbase.com/helenpb/image/130678536, Szent Laszlo Church http://www.pbase.com/helenpb/image/130490945, a villa http://www.pbase.com/helenpb/image/130489212, Kecskemet City Hall http://www.pbase.com/helenpb/image/130648750 and the Applied Arts Museum http://www.pbase.com/image/128557313.
