An  architect appalled at communism and consumerism alike

Visitors to the Hungarian pavilion at the 1992 Seville Expo came in from the searing heat to a cavernous, dark space with a great curving roof like a cathedral. At its centre was a tree, brought from the Hungarian plains, stripped bare and set into a glass floor so that its roots, which stretched as far and wide as its branches, were made visible.

It was the work of Hungarian architect Imre Makovecz, who has died aged 75.
