President marks Day of Hungarian Architecture

The works of Hungarian architects show that Hungary is a modern country and Hungarians are modern people who respect their traditions and are capable of creating something that is world class while being uniquely Hungarian, President Katalin Novak said at an award ceremony on Saturday to mark the Day of Hungarian Architecture.

Hungarian architecture reflects the relationship with the past, the focus of the present, “and whether we are open to the world”, Novak told the ceremony in Pesti Vigado. This, she added, came in the form of works that could hold their own anywhere in the world.

Saturday’s ceremony was held to present state architectural awards as well as the inaugural Karoly Kos Lifetime Achievement Award which was given to Sandor Devenyi.
