New building of the Ludovica Campus

The development of the campus of this university was a logical step necessary for a longer time; whilst training was housed previously at various points in the city, it is now integrated on one and the same site. The basic formula of the building, which is a Z-shape, has several advantages.

The new training building of the National University of Public Service has been inaugurated as part of a complex scheme of campus development. As the new buildings surround the park now like a caravan of carriages now, it would be necessary to give urbanistic considerations more emphasis.

Having more entrances towards the city, the park could have better chances to integrate into the circulation of the district, and it could evolve into a recreational zone for city-dwellers. The development of the campus of this university was a logical step necessary for a longer time; whilst training was housed previously at various points in the city, it is now integrated on one and the same site. The basic formula of the building, which is a Z-shape, has several advantages. Ludovika, as well as the wings positioned towards the dormitory are arranged along this, whilst the linking sections are aligned with Orczy Park. On both sides of the Z shape, full-height buildings with a row of columns connected with timbers round off the composition. On the side facing Üllői Road thus an entrance situation has been created, whilst on the other side, on the first floor a roof terrace connects it with the park. The wings of the buildings contain the ground floor and five storeys. The horizontal layout is a generous one, the auditoriums with a seating capacity of 300 and 500 people respectively float like cores in the surrounding rhomboid form. The two smaller auditoriums for 140 people each are adjusted to the raster of this configuration.
