International student workshop in Budapest – Space experience design

Between 26 April and 1 May, around 25 guests from Portugal, Italy and Spain will come to KÉK – Contemporary Architecture Centre in Budapest as part of the PLAY/ACT Erasmus+ project.

During their stay, the students will take part in a training course on the effects of small-scale public space experiments and tactical urbanism such as temporary asphalt painting.

On the 26th, 27th and 28th of April, we will be working in the offices of the Centre for Contemporary Architecture with the international students, who will participate in various lectures with invited speakers who are renowned Hungarian experts in placemaking.

On April 29 and 30, we will put our knowledge into practice and implement temporary interventions in the Tétényi shopping centre, which is the main intervention site of the Hungarian team.

The plans include the following activities:

  • asphalt painting with washable paint
  • making temporary wooden furniture (stools, benches) under the guidance of the KÖZMŰ team
  • installation of the exhibition of the “There is a place…” community photo competition
