Gresham Palace, Budapest, Hungary, 1906

“I call architecture frozen music.”

JOHANN WOLFGANG VON GOETHE

Visiting Budapest I spent some time in Gresham Palace. This building is a prime example of the Hungarian secession architecture. Today it houses the Four Seasons Hotel. I enjoyed the intricate lines and repetitive geometric pattern looking up at the ceiling.
