Dear visitors!

The network of “Makovecz routes” and the related website have been created to assist the exploration of the built heritage of Imre Makovecz.This is important as we are convinced that in addition to his talent as an architect, Imre Makovecz embodied an intellectuality that represents our past, present and future in Central Europe. Further, his oeuvre and his community-oriented visionary thinking can provide guidance to all who wish to follow and cherish this type of approach.

We divided the country into regions and first collected information to assist those wanting to visit the Makovecz buildings closest to Budapest. When making this selection we had to take into consideration the condition of the buildings; this was not always a joyful task. Thankfully, Government Decree no. 2022 of 2015 enables the preservation of Imre Makovecz’s built heritage and those in disrepair may be restored in the coming years. Thus we hope the list of buildings that we now recommend visiting will expand in the future.

In time, we will elaborate all routes countrywide.

We have relied on the architect’s own writings in describing the individual buildings, as he provided the best insight into the intent and process behind the creations.

Budapest and the Danube Bend

Budapest and the Danube Bend

While Imre Makovecz was born in Budapest, lived there and worked there until his passing, he had no significant public building there. He has some buildings in Budapest but those are not the most significant elements in his oeuvre. He designed many private homes in the city, but organized visits are not possible and therefore these buildings are not shown in the recommended routes.

Among the Makovecz buildings in Southwest Hungary are the architect’s first sacral buildings. Right around the time when these structures were constructed, Imre Makovecz summarized his thoughts on building churches.

“…childhood, the Zala region, a different world. A culture that dates back to thousands of years ago, life in order, buoyant streets, lots of animals, many people, great celebrations. Nature treated wisely, and the relationship of man and nature is undoubtedly in order…
