“Architectura” is the compilation of Toroczkai-Wigand’s works in architecture and design, with several colored plates.

Ede Toroczkai-Wigand (1869–1945) was a Hungarian architect and designer of decorative art. The thoughts of John Ruskin and the Arts and Crafts Movement had a major influence on him. Toroczkai-Wigand had the idea that art, architecture, folk customs and language is a complex structure and this complexity and “holism” reflecting in the unique character of his works. Beside being a prolific architect and designer, who was awarded at many international exhibitions (Paris, 1900; Torino, 1902; St. Louis, 1904), Toroczkai-Wigand published bibliophilic books, partly on his art and partly about the art, architecture and the folk tales of the Székelys in Transylvania. In these publications he combined the content and the typography of the print into a special unity, in the manner of the unique Transylvanian Art Nouveau style.
