New European Bauhaus Movement

The Fundació Mies van der Rohe joins with its expertise and broad net of collaborators the European Commission ambition intention to create a new European Bauhaus Movement. We are engaged in the participatory co-creation process together with throughout a network of thinkers, planners, architects, designers, entrepreneurs, students and citizens working together to develop innovative sustainable projects and solutions for an inclusive, sustainable and quality environment for life.

With the aim to include a cultural dimension on the journey to a sustainable future the European Commission proposes a new European Bauhaus inspired on the hundred years ago Bauhaus where architecsts and designers as Walter Gropius, Mariane Brandt, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Gunta Stozl, Marcel Breuer, Lilly Reich or Anni Albers took up the challenge of re-building Europe to improve quality of life for all in a crucible of economic and social transformation.

Until summer 2021 we will join the design phase by creating dialogue with our networking stakeholders to explore ideas that may be used by the European Commission to shape the movement. If you are interested in being part of it please email us at newbauhaus@miesbcn.com In the second half of 2021 the movement will be delivered and implement five New European Bauhaus projects in different EU Member States. In a third phase EU has planned to disseminate and promote a network of Bauhaus’ with different features, always keeping in mind the transformation towards living together sustainably.
