The bench created as part of the 'Tamás Nagy: Teacher Architect' exhibition has earned its rightful place at the MOME Campus

Date: 2023.04.18
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.

Tamás Nagy (1951-2020) was one of the most outstanding figures in Hungarian architecture in the period after the fall of communism, and our university paid tribute to his legacy last year with an exhibition titled 'Tamás Nagy: Teacher Architect'.

As part of the event, visitors placed individual bricks in a mould, which was poured with concrete and left to solidify on-site. This public bench has now found its rightful place on the MOME campus.

Former students jointly placed the bench on the pedestal on the meadow behind the Master building, enclosed by the Gondűző building.

The commemoration recalls numerous innovations introduced by Nagy, many of which still define our education today, such as reviving the tradition of construction camps and raising them to a professional level, and introducing, and introducing: hands-on experience into the curriculum.
