UP FEIT Institute of Architecture was the only Hungarian exhibitor at the Wuhan Design Week

The Wuhan Design Week takes place in a reclaimed industrial environment in Wuhan, China, a city with a population 13 million people, and our Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology was invited to present last year's New Normal, New City workshop. 

The Wuhan Design Biennale is an exhibition and professional program held every two years, showcasing the region's and the city's most prestigious developments in the world of design. This year marks the sixth time the event has been held and the second time that the Institute of Architecture, UP FEIT has participated.

In addition to exhibiting at the Wuhan Design Biennale, projects and research from Pécs were also presented at the concurrent international conference. The "Wuhan International Youth League for Urban Design Innovation" academic platform was also established with the active participation of UP FEIT. “This platform aims to collaborate on research projects in the future - similar to last year's", according to Dr Ákos Hutter, professor at the Institute of Architecture (UP FEIT), who teaches in Wuhan.

Participation in Wuhan Design Week will greatly contribute to the international visibility of our faculty and strengthen our international accreditation resources, which we are constantly striving for", says Dr Gabriella Medvegy, Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology of the University of Pécs.
