The Szeged Synagogue is a synagogue in Szeged, Hungary. It is a 1907 building designed by the Jewish Hungarian architect Lipót Baumhorn (1860–1932,), whose work is considered to contain the finest examples of the unique fin de siècle Hungarian blending of Art Nouveau and Historicist styles sometimes known as Magyar style. It served Szeged’s large Neolog community.
Hello, I'm currently designing a project and I'm having trouble responding to the context- the site essentially completes a block of historicist buildings, largely neoclassical and neorenaissance, and I'm not sure how my building should reflect or contrast them. Do you have any examples of contemporary architecture which you think respond really well to historical context in an urban setting?
