Tamás Nagy: Teacher architect I Exhibition

The Association of Hungarian Architects (AHA) in association with MOME Institute of Architecture is organising a memorial exhibition entitled ‘Tamás Nagy: Teacher architect’, whose opening is to take place on 14 April 2022 at 6:00 p.m. in AHA’s garden.

A welcome speech will be delivered by MOME associate professor András Göde, music will be played by Ferenc Vértesi. 

Tamás Nagy (1951-2020) was one of the most illustrious figures of Hungarian architecture in the period after the fall of communism. His church commissions, public buildings, the memorial designed by him, and his book ‘Works and Inspirations’ were all prominent parts of his creative activity. His oeuvre, however, has one other component that has received less attention so far.

This exhibition is intended as a homage to his work as a teacher, since in addition to having his own architecture practice, he had been teaching for many years, making a major impact on several generations of students. Tamás Nagy had been one of the most influential teachers of MOME’s Architecture Department, and later, MOME’s Institute of Architecture, introducing several innovations that have shaped architecture education.

The exhibition is open for viewing until 27 April during the AHA’s opening hours, and sponsored by Architecture Section of the National Cultural Fund (NKA).
