Dénes Györgyi - 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:

    I began my editorial career with the presidency of Mr. Adams, and my principal object was to render his administration all the assistance in my power. I flattered myself with the hope of accompanying him through [his] voyage, and of partaking in a trifling degree, of the glory of the enterprise; but he suddenly tacked about, and I could follow him no longer. I therefore waited for the first opportunity to haul down my sails.
    William Cobbett (1762–1835)

    The problem, thus, is not whether or not women are to combine marriage and motherhood with work or career but how they are to do so—concomitantly in a two-role continuous pattern or sequentially in a pattern involving job or career discontinuities.
    Jessie Bernard (20th century)

    In time your relatives will come to accept the idea that a career is as important to you as your family. Of course, in time the polar ice cap will melt.
    Barbara Dale (b. 1940)
