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.
I’ve always adored the Art Nouveau style, but lately i find myself drawn to it even more, especially the works of Gustav Klimt, Renè Lalique and Tiffany & Co.
With the world growing increasingly terrifying and bleak, Art Nouveau gives me a welcome break. Its so vibrant and uplifting. I think it stems from my childhood obsession with all the elves from LOTR. I find the style incredibly comforting and soothing.
