Lajos Kozma, 1934. Budapest. The Glass House was shelter for thousands and a centre of illegal lifesaving actions during the darkest days of Hungarian history, in 1944. At the outset of his career an adherent of the folkloristic trend of art nouveau, Kozma earned a name at first by his graphic sheets and furniture designs. In the thirties he produced a lasting crop of Bauhaus-inspired villas, family houses, holiday cottages and rep-resentative urban buildings.
