The Makovecz Center and Archives has been opened to the public

The Makovecz Center and Archives in Budapest was originally built as a family house. Imre Makovecz built it for himself and his wife. He died before he could move in, so the building awaiting its fate can now finally fill its position by hosting not his physical entity, but his intellectual grandeur.

The workroom of Imre Makovecz has been re-enacted in the house and a small exhibition space was also created, the content of which will be regularly updated. The complete life’s work will be placed in the house: plans, drawings, writings, photographs – thus creating the Makovecz Archives suitable for research purposes as well.

The private opening ceremony of the Center took place on November 20.

The House is open to the public from January 8, 2018 and can be visited for free of charge on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 2 pm to 5 pm at Budapest XII. district, Városkúti út 2.

The archive will be opened after the complete life’s work is placed in the house in categorized form. You will be notified about the exact date on our website and in the press.

We are waiting you with regular events from the beginning of 2018, which will be shared with the wide public on every forum at our disposal:

Makovecz Centre and Archives officially launched

In Government decree 2022/2015, the Government of Hungary declared that this Centre should serve the living intellect of Imre Makovecz. To implement the underlying functions, the Government partnered with the Hungarian Academy of Arts that signed a contract with the Imre Makovecz Foundation on operating the Centre.

The Budapest-based Centre and Archives named after the late Kossuth and Ybl Miklós-prize winner architect was inaugurated by Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orban. In his address, he pointed out that Imre Makovecz’s oeuvre is the basis of the spirit that Makovecz found in the deepest layers of Hungary’s national culture and presented to us in the purest form. “We only have one task: to build on, take care of and research this outstanding heritage” said the prime minster.

On behalf of the family, Pál Makovecz, the late architect son and Chairman of the Imre Makovecz Foundation’s Board addressed attendees. Additional speeches were delivered by Chairman György Vashegyi and Honorary Chairman György Fekete of the Hungarian Academy of Arts.
