The first Blended Intensive Program has been awarded

Cultural Puzzle was the title of a five-day international workshop organised by the University of Applied Sciences and Arts FH Dortmund (FHDO) in Germany, Josip Juraj Strossmayer University in Croatia and the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology of the UP  last semester. The aim of the international project, funded by the EU as an Erasmus Blended Intensive Programme, was to develop joint curricula and to create and present architectural designs.

In mixed groups, the students created their ideas for the garden of the Klimo Library building on Ignác Szepesy Street, with the aim of integrating the space into the city's circulation and making it suitable for community use. The workshop was coordinated by Dr. Tamás Molnár, Associate Professor of the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology of the UP, who introduced the students to the main architectural sights of the city centre of Pécs. Dr. János Gyergyák and Dr. Krisztián Szigetvári gave lectures on the development of the city, while Dr. Gábor Veres introduced the participants to the mills of Orfű and the Fountain House. The English-language publication summarising and describing the workshop is available at the following link:
