The Forgotten Urbanist – Antal Palóczi

The practice of modern urban planning was somewhat delayed in turn-of-the-century Hungary (1867 – 1918). Consequently, it was not the innovators who developed the urban regulation principles, but those who summed up the experiences of their peers and adjusted them to solve domestic problems, among them Antal Palóczi. He prepared urban plans and proposals for regulatory planning following the modern urban planning principles of the time. Palóczi, as an architect, received the highest award for the imperial and royal Austro-Hungarian science and art in 1867, but he did not create a single monumental building until the end of his life. Urban planning and design emerged as the central theme of his activities and shaped contemporary practice.
