Austro-Hungarian architect. He was a master of the exotic national version of Jugendstil, with strong injections of Hungarian folk-art and certain Gothic Moorish Rundbogenstil themes reminiscent of Gaudí's work and Modernisme generally in Barcelona. His most celebrated buildings are the Museum of Applied Arts (1891–6), Institute of Geology (1898–9), Post Office Savings Bank (1899–1901), and György Zala studio (1905), all in Budapest. He taught Lajta.
