Gyula Pártos

Gyula Pártos (17 August 1845 – 22 December 1916) was a Hungarian architect.[1] Together with Ödön Lechner he designed a number of buildings in the typical Secession style of the turn of the century Hungary.

Career[edit]

At the beginning of his career he studied under Antal Szkalnitzky in Budapest, gaining his degree in Berlin in 1870. After this he established what was to be a fruitful partnership with Lechner which only ended in 1896, following the design of the Budapest Museum of Applied Arts. Working independently, he received some commissions in the capital as well as in Gyor and Cegled. Some of these followed in Lechner's footsteps but others leaned towards historicism.
