Architect, sculptor, inventor. Problems are more exciting than solutions, questions more inspiring than answers.

My Story

My father engineered gliders, (you still see them in the sky over Hungary today) and my mother was a poet. So perhaps I represent the meeting place of science and art...

When I first developed the cube, I was exploring a structural question to give my students – how to make an object that could move on three axis? I put colored paper on each side, so I could follow the motion of the little squares. I jumbled the cube and enjoyed the movement of the colors. Then I wanted to put the squares back in their place, and I discovered the real challenge: how to return home?
