“Lungs of the City“ team - Environmentally positive architecture

The strongest resource of the city of Pécs lies in the human expertise educated at the University. A series of innovative developments based on them may be the way out of the current backward economic situation.

Our goal is to develop Pécs as a livable, healthy and developing city, to maintain and activate the highly qualified university layer in the economic, social and ecological life of the city. This requires a secure livelihood and a healthy environment.

The path to our goal is to validate the spirit of “Environmentally Positive Architecture” in all areas of life. The RGB project is a sample from the road to a positive future.
