Lechner, A Creative Genius
Dates:19/11/2014-31/05/2015

In 2014 the Museum commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of Ödön Lechner (1845–1914), one of the greatest Hungarian architects and one of the original geniuses of the European architectural scene at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. To mark this anniversary, the Institute of Art History of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and the Museum of Applied Arts in Budapest are jointly organizing an international conference and an exhibition.

This exhibition presents the whole scope of the work of the architect Ödön Lechner. Special attention is paid to five major works, nominated for UNESCO World Heritage Site status: the Kecskemét City Hall, the parish church of Budapest-Kőbánya, the Museum of Applied Arts, the Institute of Geology, and the Postal Savings Bank. Visitors can familiarise themselves with these through the architect’s original plans and drawings, as well as period and modern photographs. Working drawings of the ornaments so crucial to Lechner’s work, the publications which inspired him, and examples of the Zsolnay ceramic in which they were realized are also presented. One of the rooms evokes the world of the Japan Coffee House, Lechner’s second home, another acommodates a panoramic movie of his major works.
