Imre Makovecz (20 November 1935 – 27 September 2011) was an outstanding Hungarian architect active in Europe from the late 1950s onwards. He was born and died in Budapest. As he was one of the most prominent exponents of organic architecture, his buildings harmonize with the natural surroundings rather than triumph over them. He graduated at the Budapest University of Technology and later in Switzerland he got acquainted with the teachings of Rudolf Steiner. Frank Lloyd Wright and Rudolf Steiner were strong influences on him, as was traditional Hungarian art. In 1970 he visited the legendary architect Károly Kós in Transylvania. His first exhibition abroad was in Finland and later he received several international awards. He was elected as honorary member by the American Institute of Architects and the Royal Institute of British Architects, and he received the Grand Medal of the French Academy of Architecture. With twenty-two other artists he established the Hungarian Academy of Arts as an association in 1992, and later MMA became a public body by law in 2011.
