HIGHLIGHTS OF SEMESTER STUDIOS AT PARTNERS´ UNIVERSITIES
Within their architectural and urban planning studios students of Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME), Slovak University of Technology Bratislava (STU) and University of Technology Vienna (TUW) addressed issues of sustainable development of cities and regions on the banks of the Danube river (Wachau-Region, AT; Štúrovo, SK; Esztergom, HU). The results of the studio projects will be displayed and introduced to the public during the Danube Day Celebrations in Štúrovo and Esztergom on June 29, 2017.
The main aim of this trip was the presentation of students’ work at the course “Methodology of Urban design”, carried by Prof. Dr. Aleksandra Đukić. The research polygon for this course is the town Golubac with the nearby Golubac Fortress and surrounding villages. Student works were presented to local experts with competence in relevant fields too.
Komárno is a very interesting city full of history. One of the most interesting historical values is the fortification system with its monumental fortress at the Danube River bank. The workshop was primarily focused on the selection and evaluation of cultural potential. The accompanying program also consisted of a meeting with the municipality's representatives.
This trip was organized by the Faculty of Architecture (ÉPK) Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) within the confines of the “Creation week” as one of the many programmes connected to the Danube´s built heritage. Results of the meeting with representatives and inhabitants of these two cities in two EU countries can be seen through comparative studies of the students.
