For 2019, architecture is the focus, with special emphasis on communal force and collective activity, both of which play an increasing role in the creation of architectural space. A whole section will be devoted to the activity of the designers involved in the renowned Miskolc Architectural Workshop (1977-1990).
The exhibition in the apse of the Műcsarnok pays tribute to István Medgyaszay (1877-1959), one of the most important and innovative figures of 20th-century Hungarian architecture.
