Campus in Kecskemet

The inspiration is the Capricorn constellation, because this is the sign of the city (kecskemet) we just plan all the buildings around it, and the last “star” is the tower. From the tower can see all the city and the capricorn constellation.

This Campus is innovative, with lot of new technology. The shape of the buildings is in a modern organic form, including the special blind system, that connects into the intelligent electrical system. That’s why the facade of the buildings is always different depending on the sun. The architects kept the existing park with 50 year-old trees to have a liveable campus.

There is six-building education center, administrative buildings, 2 dorms next to each other, a multifunctional building, and a library. The students and the people from the city can use the campus like city in the city feeling. All the possibilities have given to live, learn, cultured or have fun

The project started in April 2015. The construction works started in May 2016.

Firstly, we put the buildings around the Capricorn constellation and try to make good facade to close the main square. It was very important to do because the middle of the square is a place for education or concerts or other events, and have to separate from the main road and from the outside areas. The important thing was also to save the existing trees what is a beautiful 50 year old park.

the land is 5 hectares the buildings with bridges is 40.000 SQM The foundation is pile base, inside it is the “energy pile”, meaning this is a geothermic heating system and we use the foundation to probe. The main areas on the Masterplan made for open education what is new education technology. The all areas are open for the city with no fence, to integrate the people from the city. Also we planned a bridge system to connect the buildings on each level and the other university across the road.

The main thing is to build around the education center with different function buildings what is able to give a liable college life and give possibilities to integrate the city life into the campus.

The pot function was hospital with old 50 years old buildings. The first job was to research how we can refurbish the buildings to be good for the university. The building material was bauxite concrete, what was unusable. We made the decision to delimiting it and make a new modern campus.
