The location for the Science Building is beautiful and more than suitable: opposite the Heart Institute of the University of Pécs, on the southern slope of the Makár Hill that is still an unbuilt site with grass. Hence the Architects got the playful idea: ‘Rolling Stones’, the vision of stones rolling down from the hills. The three roughly uniform ‘stones’ of the Science Building uses three different type of energy source. The heat of the soil, solar energy and normal central heating is also used. The building is already equipped with modern building service systems. The various methods can be tested in a way that the results can be recorded and the performances can be compared.
