By Hayley Pither – Foundation Diploma in Art and Design

In February, I was fortunate enough to travel to Budapest to gather research for my final project. My work for this term revolved around designing a film set for the Disney film Hercules. I decided to take photographs of the architecture and to take note of the different textures and patterns. This would hopefully inspire my final project, with the theme of ancient Greek architecture. On the first day I went to the Matthias Church and the St. Stephen’s Basilica. The interior design was very Catholic Christian originated, so the windows and the ceiling designs revolved around the Biblical stories. These places were beautifully painted, and showed a lot of history of the country, discussing their Monarchy and wars.
