  • Hope Town: Reality of a Dream

    Hope Town: Reality of a Dream

    Hope Town is a beautiful island community filled with history and hospitable people.

    It is the warmth and sincerity of the Islanders that make this “Paradise” a very special place.

    Hope Town, originally called Great Harbour settled in 1785, is on the Island of Elbow Cay, and is located in the Abaco Islands of the Bahamas.

    Hope Town wraps in a crescent shape around the Harbour with the Elbow Reef Lighthouse (Built in 1863) as the focal point to the setting sun. Sailing vessels at mooring in the calm Harbour, the sound of the surf breaking on the white sandy beaches and the quant Older “Loyalist Style” Houses of Hope Town make it a quiet, pleasant and memorable place to live or visit.

  • Making Evergreen Architecture

    Making Evergreen Architecture

    In this book, the drawings of the Sports and Cultural Center in Budapest, Hungary are assembled. If nothing else, it’s enduring ideas –to absorb and emanate Light –and the distantly conducted design process make it special. It was a competition-winning project 20 years ago, partially constructed, then halted, till just recently. It was completed, and opened with a specially composed fairy tale operetta at the last three days of 2014.

    Designed by architects Antal Lazar, DLA in Budapest, where at the time he was the dean of the Faculty of Architecture at the Technical University of Budapest, and Dr. Peter Magyar, RIBA, serving in the Pennsylvania State University, as the director of the School of Architecture. Hundreds of ink drawings were exchanged via fax (at that time the fastest tool in distant communication), all preserved on letter-size ecru paper.

    Now some photos represent the unique qualities of the environment, which survived the long hibernation, verifying the possibility of creating evergreen architecture.
