    Attila Batár photography exhibition
    FUGA Budapest Center of Architecture, 25 January – 12 Februray 2018

    I split the selected images into three equal parts. The first is the home, represented by important objects and details from our apartment. The second is about the environment, the Butte aux Cailles district in Paris. The images conjure the phenomena, spaces and buildings of the area. Finally, the third part is about the world; it contains pictures capturing my various memories. In the first part there are hardly any architectural photos, but there are more and more towards the end. The first two parts were shot with an iPhone camera, while the last part was shot with Canon and Nikon. The photos of the first two parts were taken in 2017, whereas the photos of the third part were taken over ten years ago. /Attila BATÁR/

    Attila BATÁR is a Farkas Molnár Award-winning architect (2015), and architectural expert. He was born in 1925 in Budapest. He started his high school studies in Sárospatak Reformed College and finished in the Royal Catholic School of Budapest. After the Second World War, he enrolled in ELTE Faculty of Humanities’ Sociology and History programs. He earned his degree in history in 1953. For many years, he taught as assistant lecturer at ELTE. After having to abandon his humanities track, he studied at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics’ Faculty of Architecture. He received his diploma in 1963. His practical experience was completed primarily in the Institute for Urban Planning, where he was mentored by György JÁNOSSY. He left the country in 1968 and worked as an architect in Paris at Jacques FERNIER‘s office. In 1970 he moved to the United States, where he worked as an architect in Los Angeles (Gruen Associates), San Francisco (Sandy and Babock), and then in New York (D.P.A.). He received his design permit in 1980, which allowed him to be the head of architectural offices. Abroad, his design activity mainly consisted of residential buildings, from private homes to middle-sized residential houses. He also participated in the design of some public buildings. He returned to Paris as a retiree, where he still lives today. His last two decades have been devoted primarily to writing books and studies on architecture. Although his first writings were published while he was still in Hungary, in recent years they have been published in English, German and French. Their themes include issues in urbanism (mobility) and architecture theory (the role of history in architecture and the relationship between psychology and the building).
