When the MOME campus was developed, all the conditions were in place to create a high-quality architecture: namely, a generous client with a forward-looking vision, a democratic method of selecting architects through an open design competition, and the financial resources needed for the implementation.
The educational buildings standing on the campus area were designed by Zoltán Farkasdy in 1954. Today, at place of the other education wing next to the socialist realist main building there is the new building of the MOME Base. The original intention was to build a third house on the other side of the main building, but was not realized at that time, and now the new MOME Up building is placed there. The designers organized the building complex in the same coordinate system, along an underground street. At the hub of the entire campus circulation system, they created the “heart of MOME”, the Ground, the spaces of which – emerging from under the ground – can become the pulsating center of the university. The new buildings are intentionally heterogeneous in appearance, and each block has a specific interior world. At the same time, many architectural gestures organize them into a unit. The off-white color of the main building and the vertical rhythm of the portico columns are also echoed in the look of the new buildings, of course, by using contemporary tools. Inside the building, unusual insights create similar spatial situations. As a result of the bold interventions and generous architecture, the creation of a new MOME identity, previously set as an objective, and the creation of a more open educational structure also seem to be realized.
