Dénes Györgyi - Career

Career

Gyorgyi began studying architecture at the Budapest Joseph Technical University, where he met his slightly older contemporary Károly Kós. Together they formed a unique partnership and, most significantly, they built the Városmajor Street school in Budapest.

On his own, Györgyi designed the Hangya Associated Office building (1920) and many other schools and public buildings in regional cities, for example the Copf-style Deri Museum in Debrecen. He also designed numerous pavilions for world fairs: Barcelona (1929), the Brussels International Exposition (1935), and the Paris Exposition Internationale des Arts et Techniques dans la Vie Moderne (1937). He designed the Electricity Works at Budapest's Székesfőváros (1926–1938), which incorporated art deco and modernist elements.

In 1945, Györgyi lost his only son and his last work was to be competed 3 years later, a primary school at Balatonalmádi where he lived his final years. He briefly became involved in the Hungarian People's Republic offices of State Planning during the 1950s, but illness prevented this from continuing. Györgyi died in Balatonalmádi. His collaborator Kós considered him "One of the outstanding architects in Hungary of that sorrowful and dark period between the wars".

Famous quotes containing the word career:

    Like the old soldier of the ballad, I now close my military career and just fade away, an old soldier who tried to do his duty as God gave him the light to see that duty. Goodbye.
    Douglas MacArthur (1880–1964)

    I restore myself when I’m alone. A career is born in public—talent in privacy.
    Marilyn Monroe (1926–1962)

    Each of the professions means a prejudice. The necessity for a career forces every one to take sides. We live in the age of the overworked, and the under-educated; the age in which people are so industrious that they become absolutely stupid.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)
