Drechsler Palace (Ödön Lechner)

Drechsler Palace (Ödön Lechner)

This is a favorite building of mine by famous Hungarian Secessionist architect Ödön Lechner, built 1883-1886, designed in partnership with Gyula Partos. It's currently under renovation but will be magnificent once it's done. I've never been able to see it at eye level or photograph the entire thing, but it was right across the street from the balcony, which was packed at intermissions.
