READING CABIN in Csingervölgy 

Date: 2022.11.29
A marriage of art and nature, the reading cabin built according to a design by MOME’s architecture students can also be used as a bivouac shelter.   

As Dániel Baló, teacher of the MOME students designing the reading cabin told the Veszprém County News Portal, the basic concept was developed by students Imola Fazakas and Liza Formanek as part of a university course and further improved in the next semester together with their fellow students.  

The idea of a bivouac shelter was incorporated into the concept to enable hikers to spend the night at the cabin and even heat up food using a gas heater. The interior of the 1.5 meters wide, 5 meters tall and 6 meters long cabin consists of two bookshelves facing each other, with bunks stacked above.  

According to Baló, the students made everything themselves with the exception of the glass windows. The cabin was built over a week, using ground screws provided by a business free of charge, and burnt planks. The covered, open porch is accessible to everyone, while the cabin itself, which can house up to 6 people, can be unlocked after putting in a code.

MOME students triumphed at the Red Dot Design Awards, often referred to as the "Oscars of the design world" with revolutionary concepts including a hybrid tram, a modular pram, an innovative VR headset for home workouts, and a stretcher designed for rough terrains. These award-winning projects were developed under the new preparatory programme of the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, whose success is demonstrated by five out of twelve submissions receiving accolades.

It is a long-standing tradition of our University to entrust designing the visual identity of the MOME Diploma, from graphic design to the portrait photography of BA and MA students, to students through a competition. The annually refreshed concept thus reflects the university community from within, creating an important snapshot of the times and a unique keepsake for each graduating year.

Ten teams have embarked on an exciting journey with mentors from MOME, with several projects focusing on space-based plant cultivation and creating new habitats as alternatives to a lost Earth. The 2024 edition of the “Jump into the Future!" competition for 7th to 10th graders revolves around the theme of space. The second round is already underway, and the expanded jury had a challenging task putting together a shortlist from 52 entries by highly committed students from across the country.
