(1935– ).

Hungarian architect, he was influenced by the work of F. L. Wright and by the ideas of Rudolf Steiner. The RC Church, Paks, Hungary (1987–90), seems to grow from the earth within a huge ogee-shaped roof pierced by pointed windows. Three spires, carrying a crescent, a symbol of the sun, and a Latin cross, rise up from the almost animal-like shape. His work draws on primitive shapes, forms, and naturally occurring elements, and includes the Naturata Shop Restaurant, Überlingen, Germany (1992), and the Hungarian Pavilion, Expo 92, Seville, Spain (1992—with seven church-like spires rising through the roof).
