Architects of Budapest – Sándor Finta

In our series of interviews with Budapest’s architects, they tell us their thoughts on the city, its built heritage and the urban bustle. This time we speak to the city’s chief architect Sándor Finta, whose work gave new momentum to the Town Hall. His studio also designed two metro stations for the newest M4 line and it’s acclaimed internationally for its provocative designs. Sándor is also part of the Hungarian Contemporary Architecture Centre, which coordinates a multitude of bottom-up initiatives that are starting to come to life.
