“The New European Bauhaus movement is intended to be a bridge between the world of science and technology and the world of art and culture… it is about a new European Green Deal aesthetic combining good design with regenerative living.”President of the European Commission Ursula Von der Leyen
The New European Bauhaus is a co-creation project of 5 innovation centres in 5 cities, designed to transform the built environment (housing, infrastructure, food, transportation) into one fit for the future, with fewer emissions, and long-term social value.
Von der Leyen is seeking to engage all in a transparent manner, from designers and architects to digital experts and entrepreneurs, in a process of social transformation. ReGen Villages is a proud partner at the table bringing our knowledge of regenerative living to blend with global innovators.
What is clear about the New European Bauhaus is its ambition and focus on co-creation and experimentation. Such an interdisciplinary effort should be considered as long-term cultural policy with the potential to work explicitly, funding and promoting art and culture, and implicitly, changing the way we interact with the environment and reducing the harm we cause to it.
Moreover, the carbon-saving potential and social value of a project of this ilk is precedented, having delivered results across a number of case studies. The New European Bauhaus will look to emulate the carbon-saving ability of the “Passivhaus,” whose efficient insulation and heat recovery systems drastically reduce energy demand, allowing houses to be powered by renewable sources at a low cost.
