He has often worked to expand the client program to include public spaces that interweave with the surrounding cityscape.

About Martha Thorne

dean

He graduated from the Faculty of Architecture of the Buda­pest University of Technology in 1980. He has been working for KÖZTI ever since. He had to work for two years at the structural engineering department of KÖZTI. However, he turned his attention to architecture after a year, supported by Lajos Zalaváry, whom he later assisted in numerous competitions. As a junior architect, he contributed to the designs of the Kano stadium in Nigeria under the management of Tibor Hübner and later László Szabados. After coming home, he worked at Miklós Dobozi’s studio. He regularly entered design competitions together with his colleagues at the company and also with former fellow students from the university. He was convinced that hierarchy was indispensable in a design process; team members can contribute more efficiently to a successful outcome if they support a specific concept and the architect who invented that concept. He was admitted to the Master School of MÉSZ (Association of Hungarian Architects) in 1986. He studied there for two years, which had a fundamental influence over his career; besides the group of Lajos Zalaváry–Miklós Dobozi–Csaba Csontos, he met numer­ous other architects, exciting architectural and other ideas. Winning the competition and the commission of the SOS Children’s Village in Koszeg opened an opportunity for him to establish his own studio. He has also won several architectural design competitions later, resulting in commissions for KÖZTI. Since 2010 he is a member of the Széchenyi Academy of Literature and Arts of MTA (Hungarian Academy of Sciences) and since 2013 he is a regular member of the Hungarian Academy of Arts.
