Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design
Institute of Architecture
In our vision artistic spatial design, negotiation skills and engineering knowledge form a unit that builds on each other. The Institute aims to train responsible professionals endowed with creative power, with equal weight of tradition and innovation.
The programme is designed to help students learn the artistic and technical skills required for shaping the built environment and design processes, using an approach characterised by the trinity of architecture, interior design and furniture design.
The Architecture MA programme delivers training with an emphasis on complexity, and architectural conceptualisation grounded in research. Students gain proficiency in both individual and group assignments, and an understanding of all aspects of architectural design.
An extensive museum pedagogy collaboration was launched by the Janus Pannonius Museum in 2019 under the name Op Art Academy, coordinating the work of students and teachers of four universities, including MOME. The resulting student designs and artworks are currently on display at the Museum Gallery and the Vasarely Museum in Pécs.

In memory of one of the most influential professors at the Institute of Architecture, the community of our university has unveiled a piece of public furniture, honouring his legacy.
What does it take for a young designer to be successful? Whether for running their own graphic design or animation studio, founding their own fashion label or working as an employee, future designers need market and entrepreneurial skills to succeed and realise their goals. For this purpose, MOME teachers have developed a course that is unique in the Central Eastern European region, providing students with a business approach specifically reflecting the needs of the creative industries.
Each year, the Architecture MA students of MOME’s Architecture Institute explore a specific subject. The focus of the 2022/2023 academic year was adaptive reuse.
From 22–26 May, the second end-of-year semester of the 2022/2023 academic year will proceed for 5 days. We look forward to seeing you at these events that are also open to the public. We warmly welcome to the university’s campus all those interested in the public events of the degree programmes.
MOME Architecture Institute’s Public Lecture Series welcomes prominent Hungarian and International Architects, Designers, and Thinkers to present and discuss their work within the built environment.

The aim is to train open-minded designers who can respond sensitively to environmental, social and cultural processes and stand for the highest standards of quality. It seeks to enhance the competitiveness of MOME graduate designers both in the national and international arena, helping them carve out a niche in the industry for themselves.
We aim to ensure that students of our institute as well as of the design institutes have an in-depth understanding of art in its social, historical and conceptual context, can play an active role in its creation, and are able to mediate it in both informal and formal (classes, critiques, papers, exhibitions) settings.
Our four knowledge centres, Animation, Photography, Media Design and Graphic Design, offer BA, MA, PhD and extracurricular programmes, as well as high standards of education, an open-minded environment, and state-of-the-art technological background.
