AQUINCUM INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY
The task was to create a main building for a new university that was established as a result of Graphisoft Parks’ owner/founder’s philosophy which aims to retain Hungarian intellectual values in the country and utilizes its worth. The buildings of the new university are located in the functionally diverse, turn-of-the-century industrial buildings of the former gasworks. So, the main question was the relationship and coexistence of new and old architecture. We tried to create a modern, fun and inspiring university environment with maximizing the presentation of the spaces, structures and values of the old, industrial crane building. Our plan was not accepted. The building has been renovated since.
