Theme of the course
Define the design program and prepare the project for a temporary Multipurpose Activity and Leisure Centre in Budapest situated in a gap of the inner city of Budapest. Design site: downtown area of Budapest.

Design task
The aim of the course is to define the design program of a temporary sport building/ leisure centre in a downtown plot of Budapest on the base of rent. The construction should operate for 10 years. What kind of structure, which kind shall be chosen? How big should it be? Which material, which building method, which construction is adequate in this situation?

Progress throughout the semester
The course will be held in a workshop style. Students’ work will be accompanied by consultants of both departments. Students will have to complete their tasks in groups.
The seminars not only provide opportunity to collective consultations and presentations but also contain the consultant’s phase-specific presentations which shall improve the development of the work.
Thus in the beginning of the course students will get familiar with the tasks and the site in form of presentations and site visits. They also get acquainted with examples, possible structural systems, technologies and possible solutions.
The development/progress of their projects will be presented weekly by the students in form of open presentations during the seminars. These presentations will be immediately evaluated by the consultants who will discuss the work in public. As the design process goes on students have to document the architectural and technical interpretation of at least one example, the characteristics of the designed site and the architectural appearance of the building.

Three main phases form the basic structure of the course:
Analysis – discovering the characteristics of the site: history, layers, development plans, etc. The analysis starts with individual exploration, but the final teams of 2-4 people will take on the analysis together. From the beginning a teamwork involving all the class will take place based on the discussions of the findings and of the differences of cultures and visions.
Economy analysis and calculations – time schedule – building program
Architectural plans – architectural behaviour, interpreting the context: building and landscape design. A full documentation of an architectural intervention will be developed in scale 1:200. Design work will be assisted by consultations in class, and common presentation is held with collective critical evaluation.
