Abstract

Country house building in Hungary in the decades between 1840 and 1914, the age of architectural historicism, flourished. Even if cities were the main arena for building activities, the country house managed to maintain a considerable degree of its former prestige and had a fair share of the building boom of the period. The basically conservative social setup and mentality of agrarian Hungary continued to favour the realization of sumptuous residences in the countryside, which involved not only a specific form of architecture but also a unique lifestyle. This paper sets out to examine the complexities of the Hungarian country house of the period, primarily aspects of building, but also issues which exceed the realm of architecture per se. Thus the main themes include patronage, planning, construction, the style, the configuration, the layout, the interior, the park and the environment, life in the country house, the arts and sciences, the display of glory and aspects of publicity. (This paper is a condensed version of the author's book Kastélyépítészet és kastélykultúra Magyarországon – a historizmus kora [Country house building and country house culture in Hungary – the age of historicism], Budapest, 2007)
