Notes on the Geography of Hungary: Pest of the Habsburgs: Photo 28
Here we are, the Museum of Applied Arts by Odon Lechner (soon to design the dragon-and-serpent-topped Postal Savings Bank) and Gyula Partos. The building commemorates the celebration in 1896 of the arrival of the Magyars a thousand years earlier. Like the Postal Savings Bank, this building, too, has a steel frame. Draped on that skeleton? Heathcote calls this "probably the first major museum in the western world not to be executed in a historicist style."
