Kecskemét University Campus living wall

A sustainable and massive living wall in harmony with nature

The new Kecskemét University Campus in Hungary, winner of the BIG SEE Architecture Award 2022, aims to create a close connection with the city beyond the traditional function that a university usually has. The architects maintained the existing park with 50-year-old trees to create an organically shaped and habitable campus open to the community with outdoor and indoor green areas including Minigarden’s massive living wall. Installed by Compact Nature Kft / Minigarden Hungary it is the highest indoor vertical garden in the country – 17 meters high!!
