What is the New European Bauhaus Initiative?
The New European Bauhaus initiative, promoted by the European Commission, connects the European Green Deal to our living spaces.
It calls on all Europeans to re-imagine and re-invent the places we live in, pushing for cross-disciplinary debates and ideas for aesthetic, inclusive and sustainable urban communities and habitats.
Ursula Von der Leyen
Our vision for the future of living spaces
We see the New European Bauhaus as an occasion to launch a debate on the future of our homes and the possibility to create new integrated living systems.
As the original Bauhaus activated a process of standardisation and rationalisation of home culture and housing construction, making it possible for everyone to have an adequate and functional living environment, the New European Bauhaus can act as a stimulus to rethink the concept of “home”.
To do so, it is necessary to go beyond the nuclear home model and to build an understanding of our living environments as increasingly “fluid and integrated systems of inhabiting”, expanding beyond our walls to local neighbourhoods and non-urban territories.
The Italian National Committee for Social Housing is promoting a series of three webinars with the objective to set off and coordinate a collective reflection between experts, practitioners and institutions on the future of the housing sector in Italy.
The webinars are developed within the framework of the New European Bauhaus initiative launched by the European Commission.
Tuesday, September 21, from 10.00 to 12.00 am
"The New European Bauhaus is all about translating new needs into tangible outcomes in our cities "
