Highly recognized architects invited from around the globe such as Eduardo Souto de Moura, Tony Fretton, Édouard François, Heinz Tesar and Petra Čeferin will hold lectures to present an overview of trends in architecture in Hungary and abroad. This event has become a tradition over the last seven years, having grown into the most important event for the architect community in Hungary.

Hungary inveiled the design for their pavillion for next year’s Shanghai World Expo, designed by Tamás Lévai. Gömböc, as a hungarian invention, is the central element of the exhibition, a two meter high solid plexiglass moving object.
What is Gömböc (pronounced as ‘goemboets‘)? ‘Gömböc’ is the first known homogenous object with one stable and one unstable equilibrium point, thus with two equilibria altogether on a horizontal surface. It can be proven that no object with less than two equilibria exists. The discovery of the inaccessible path has led to the idea of GÖMBÖC. The pavilion as wood is intended to represent this path, and since it is of immaterial nature, we are trying to evoke it with non materials: empty space, light and sounds.
