Artistic-level design work for shaping the human environment
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.
Project-based work is the main focus of this highly autonomous and proactive community’s activity. The studios with realistic programmes are led by active practitioners, facilitating research, exploration, creative process and critical discourse in an innovative, open setting.
By providing an international outlook and exploring overlapping areas with other fields, it delivers progressive and forward-looking solutions to today’s challenges. This internationally competitive degree enables our graduates to find work at the most prominent architecture firms or to take on all-round freelance design jobs.
A team of MOME students have won first place at the CheckINN Revitalisator competition. First launched by the CheckINN Turisztikai Innovációmenedzsment Kft and MOME last year, the competition invites university and college talents to seek solutions for the reuse of rust zone sites in teamwork. From the nearly 30 teams, INDOOHÁZ received the first prize for giving new life to abandoned railway water reservoirs as bivouacs for backpackers.
MOME Art and Design Management and Architecture students, as well as Design and Visual Art Teacher students from MOME and ELTE all participated in a course exploring the subjects of built environment education and participatory design. The architects also received a practical participatory design assignment involving high school students, namely to design a new community space in the courtyard of the Szilágyi Erzsébet High School in district 1.
This year was the 16th time the Architect Regatta took place at Lake Balaton, and the second time MOME has participated. The race, founded by architect Ernő Kálmán DLA, has become a tradition in the Hungarian architecture community, and is an excellent opportunity not just for sailing but also for networking among architects. The message of the race this year is that whatever life brings, we can count on each other -- “We are building the future together!”
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 Spring 2023 series titled “Architectural Matters” features a diversity of lecturers from around Europe whose work focuses on the materialization of forward-thinking concepts. The wide range of expertise creates an opportunity for discussion and reflection on the state of creating our cities of tomorrow.
