What Happened When Hungary Revived Classical Architecture In Budapest

“The experiment of beautifying Budapest, and the subsequent lessons learned from it, can and should be applied to the rest of the Western world. While those outside the Iron Curtain did not have modern architecture forced upon them, they have still been subjected to the same nihilistic architecture that rejects any notion of beauty, tradition, or culture.

President Biden’s quick rejection of classical architecture has made it clear that public beauty will have to be won at the ballot box. We should work to reclaim our architectural heritage from the modernists and strive to make our cities beautiful again.”

Stephen Sholl, “What Happened When Hungary Revived Classical Architecture In Budapest,” Federalist, 4/26/2021.
