New European Bauhaus
The aim of the NEW EUROPEAN BAUHAUS | STRUCTURAL TRANS- FORMATION LAB SAXONY-ANHALT is to research, communicate and establish sustainable, visionary design for the 21st century. An out- standing place with international appeal is being created anew, where teaching and research, culture and business interact directly. The NEW EUROPEAN BAUHAUS | STRUCTURAL TRANSFORMATION LAB SAXO- NY-ANHALT brings together sectors that have hitherto acted individu- ally in order to accelerate the step into a sustainable century. Following the example of the historic Bauhaus, the networking of disciplines for visionary and application-oriented design is being implemented in a real-world laboratory.
To this end, the core competencies of the Bauhaus Dessau Founda- tion and the Anhalt University of Applied Sciences will be bundled and sharpened at the Bauhaus Campus and networked with the diverse disciplines of the Anhalt University of Applied Sciences at its three loca- tions. Together with other partners from science, business, art and cul- ture, a holistic think & do tank is being established that is committed to visionary, sustainable concepts and their concrete implementation and identity-creating design.
As a foundation in the combination of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation and the Master’s degree programmes in architecture and design with further evaluation partners such as the Federal Environment Agency, whose headquarters is also located in Dessau, everything is already there at the STRUCTURAL TRANSFORMATION LAB. There is just a need to bring all this together and to engage it in dialogue with civil society and a wide range of actors in order to develop holistic strategies to- gether.
The English-language design and architecture master’s programmes are truly global. The students at the Bauhaus campus come from over 20 countries and span all continents and time zones. There are also close cooperative relationships, for example with the ensa in Nantes, the Politecnico di Milano or the Technion in Haifa. Together with the appeal of the historic Bauhaus and the international charisma of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation, it is possible to authentically address global issues with their cultural, social and economic conditions and to test solutions in an exemplary manner in the real-world laboratory.
