The second phase of the building will be the Faculty of Pharmaceuticals, between the entrance hall and the Thaly Kálmán street (see the site plan).

The functions are organised vertically, based on the idea of transparency, controllability and graduality. The big lecture halls and the educational rooms are connected to the four-storey high entrance hall. The restaurant is by the Tűzoltó street in a separate wing with a connection to a garden. There is also a sport-complex and an animal-house in the building.

The clear, strict organisation of the floor plan is reflected also in the appearance of the art installations as well – the concrete floor by Antal Örkény and the hanging flag-like elements by Iván Molnár J. The space can easily transformed to an exhibition-place.
