ADAPTIVE REUSE - An exhibition by MOME architecture students
Adaptive reuse is the process of converting an existing building for a functional purpose other than which it was originally built or designed for, while retaining its historic features, to advance the sustainable historical and cultural development of urban areas. It signifies an efficient strategic approach for utilising the existing built heritage as an alternative for new construction both socioculturally and economically.
The exhibition showcases the works of first-year architecture MA students from the last two semesters.
The assignment for the autumn semester involved reinventing an abandoned school building in the centre of the Újpalota housing estate, and reintegrating into its urban environment, while in the spring semester, students were set the task to remodel the former Istenszemle bed-and-breakfast in Zugliget as part of the Árkay Tender in collaboration with Landscape and Garden Art MA students of MATE.
The exhibition will be opened by Chief Architect of Budapest Zoltán Erő on 31 May 2023 at the Budapest Architecture Centre.
After the opening, the exhibition is available for viewing until 25 June 2023.
