    As we spend our university years, we need a wide variety of different spatial situations. Beyond the weekdays on campus, university students’ housing, learning habits, community and leisure activities also seek new spatial forms. Meanwhile, student’s lifestyle are strongly linked to metropolitan vibe, international students bring new cultures to the city, further enriching the diverse local climates. New functions and spatial needs are often embedded in historic urban fabric redefining the old housing structures. To meet this new challenges of student life and new forms of accomodation will emerge over time or the old ones need to be re-interpreted. During the semester we are looking for this new possibilities of university students housing forms and will try to rethink the existing functional structures from the architectural, educational and sociological point of view. The site of the semester will be the same for everyone, and will be a few urban blocks in the historic tissue of Józsefváros Palace District, between the Hungarian Radio and the ELTE Trefort Ágoston High School (see aerial) with a large number of empty plots and infill possibilities. In the immediate neighbourhood of the area we can a find various university buildings and faculties. During the complex 1 and 2 semesters we will deal with: urban renewal, historic typologies of Pest, infill developments, housing typologies: co-housing and social housing, urban sustainability.

    The semester continues the design project of the Complex 1 subject. At the beginning of the semester, it is possible to rethink the 1: 100 scale plan by reviewing the concepts, after which the task is to prepare the 1:50 scale construction plan with the professional consultants by working out the appropriate details. In addition to the use of materials and details, we also place great emphasis on interior design.
