He highlighted among Makovecz’s designs the Hungarian pavilion at Expo’92 in Seville, the campus of the Pázmany Péter Catholic University and houses built in Hungarian villages hit by the red sludge disaster in 2010.
“Makovecz was famous for standing by things that seemed lost if he believed they were worthy of support,” Gulyás said.
