Event Title

Concepts for University developments, focusing on campus of Rokus str., Pécs, Hungary

Session

Architecture and Spatial Planning

Description

The university faculties are situated in different parts of the city and they are not connected to each other. The faculties are located in minimal areas, they are surrounded by residential and public functions. The communication between the faculties and the transport network are not solved for the students and for the city. Traditional campuses have not been established around the universities and the development goals of the university to create them were ineffective. The University of Pécs – as a campus – can only work optimally if the faculties and their surroundings are interconnected by suitable transport, infrastructure network.

Within the framework of ’Modern Cities’ University Development Program, it is possible to reconsider the existing premises and to regroup the faculties – when the disunity of the Faculty of Engineering was solved, the significant property stock of the campus in Rókus street partly lost its function due to reorganization. The maintenance of the cadastre in its current form is expensive due to its under-utilized operation.

However, the existing properties should be considered an opportunity rather than a problem. With the planned increase in the educational capacity of the Faculty of Pharmacy, we are able to create spaces for transparent education of international standards with a functional change in new emerging development areas in the existing buildings.
