According to "Architecture as Philosophy: The Work of Imre Makovecz," edited by JŠnos Gerle, this community center complex represents the final making of peace between two peoples (Swabians from Germany and the Transylvanian Szeklers) in Kakasd. The Swabians, who had lived in Hungary for centuries, were expelled to Germany for alleged complicity with the German army during World War II, and the Szekards left in protest over the loss of feudal privilege after 1764, but both wanted to return home to Hungary in the 1940s. Apparently they were both settled in Kakasd, but hated each other. Finally, after 30 years of conflict, intermarriages started to happen between the two groups and they settled their differences. The tower is an adaptation of a Transylvanian bell tower; this chapel at one end of the complex is reminiscent of Swabian houses of worship; and I'm not clear on the style or significance of the central, town hall, tower.
