...I've been in the profession for
fifteen years and I have a feeling that I've developed an instinct
for certain aspects. I feel and like this free world, it provides
opportunities for very exciting things. Before, when the state
ordered buildings, they would dictate the conditions. Well, clients
still dictate, but this time it's money and the marketing group
who tell you how far you can go. The same obstacles still exist,
only this time they're somewhere else, the emphasis is a little
...Generally speaking I don't have a bad opinion about limited
conditions, sometimes it's much more difficult to plan a building
between two existing ones but it's more exciting than planning
a freestanding building. Because you have to adapt to many things.
But when you plan a façade of a certain material, and you have
to forget that for financial reasons, or you have to use laminated
floor where you know full well that in two years' time it's going
to come up and they're going to have to throw it out, it' a bad
feeling and I try my best to fight things like that.
...Officially I'm the head of the office and I feel that I get
just as many assignments as my father does, which feels good, because
it's not like the little boy inherited the kingdom, but there is
also an achievement behind that. When we work side by side there
is no friction whatsoever, it's absolute harmony. We live in the
same street now in Szentendre, by the way, and in the evenings
we often ring each other up with a bottle of wine.
...I have two children: Márk, eleven, and Bori, seven. Márk is
going to high school soon, which is crazy, and Bori is just starting
school. They're completely different and really sweet. Márk is
a serious, contemplative, honorable, cute kid, while Bori is a
creative and lively little creature. I love them a lot.
