The Bauhaus, as a symbol of progress and avantgarde, has always given a direct response to our society’s demands, adapting to the necessities of the times. Following the same spirit, our school aims to create a new generation of architects who see its profession as a useful tool to solve the problems of our days. In a context marked by an increasing neoliberalism, we must advocate for a more inclusive education, in order to create a sense of community, of mutual help and respect. As architects, we have to see ourselves as another member of that large community.

But how can we change our society if we haven’t understood it before? We believe that the first thing to do in our Bauhaus is to receive a basic knowledge of our world: philosophy, ethics, sociology, history, economics… classes in which students will be encouraged to debate and confront the universal dilemmas and create a strong, critical mind.

But everything isn’t in the books. Following this introduction courses, students will have to choose from a wide selection of studios. Each of them will address a different aspect of architecture (house, city, scenography, heritage…) and students will be faced with a project to work with. However, a problem can be solve in many different ways. Each student will be encouraged to approach the problem from the view that most interests them: from a structural and constructive view; from an artistic view; from a theorical view; or maybe from an utopian view. In order to develop each one of this approaches, there will be offered several complementary courses: from physics to color theory, every student will be able to create its own meaning of the word “architect” and its profession.


The building tries to be an architectural representation of the pedagogy of our Bauhaus. It is organized around the principles of the mat-buildings. This concept defines a type of building based on the modulation and interconnection of space.
