2nd National Salon of Architecture
Kunsthalle, Budapest, 26 April – 25 August 2019

In the last five years the Műcsarnok has served as the venue for the National Salons, which have attracted significant interest from professional circles and the lay audience alike. Every year the fresh achievements of another genre are presented. In 2019 architecture is in focus, with special emphasis on communal force and collective activity, which play an increasing role in architectural space and its creation. Community building and solidarity in architecture will be a separate thematic unit, and a whole section will be devoted to the activity of the architects of the now legendary Miskolc Architectural Workshop (1977–1990) from the formation of the group to the present day. The exhibition chapter in the Műcsarnok’s apse pays tribute to István Medgyaszay (1877–1959), one of the most important and innovative figures of 20th-century Hungarian architecture.
