Life and career
The son of Mihály Oszadszki, a cabinet maker, Magyar was three years old when the family changed its name. He became a master builder after studying in Budapest in 1901, and completed further studies abroad. His short but notable career focused on Szeged where he designed the Reök Palace (1907) and numerous other organic buildings. He was only 35 when he committed suicide following disappointment in love. He was buried in Dugonics cemetery where there is a permanent memorial to him tended by the city council since 2004.
