csillLab collab I MOME Architecture students at Volt Festival
This year’s Volt Festival also featured a full-day workshop by MOME Architecture BA students.
The first part of the two-stage workshop focused on the creation of model furniture. Participants placed the models assembled from tiny pieces of wood and painted in colour on a map of Sopron to mark possible rest stop locations around the city.
In the second part, our Architecture students held a community furniture DIY session for creating a piece of public space lounge furniture, to be placed at what is Sopron’s most popular spot according to the first stage of the workshop.
How can graphic design illustrate tolerance? Born in Bosnia and currently living and working in New York, Mirko Ilić launched the Tolerance Poster Show six years ago, which is open to the public until April 2 in the MOME Ground.
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. The Business to Design (B2D) educational programme was created with involvement of prominent professionals and entrepreneurs in the field, MOME alumni, as well as invited international speakers. Its originality lies in it forming part of the curriculum and being a mandatory subject for all BA students.
MOME has launched English language courses at different levels led by native teachers not just to improve the level of language skills in general but also to teach the vocabulary of the academic terminology, creative fields and the jobs trained at the university.
