Piliscsaba: Whimsical Campus by Imre Makovecz

The Pázmány Péter Katolikus Egyetem in Piliscsaba, just outside Budapest, was designed by famous Hungarian organic architect Imre Makovecz in 1995 and is a delight to see, with its unconventional but fascinating forms. Unfortunately the sun was close to setting when we were there and the buildings were closed as it was a Sunday, but this campus definitely deserves another visit.


More information on the extensive work of Makovecz (who just died in September) can be found here http://www.makovecz.hu/main.html (look under Most Important Projects). For my gallery on the work of Makovecz, visit http://www.pbase.com/helenpb/makovecz
