A hundred years later and the world has once again undergone fundamental changes as the result of the digital revolution. We experienced radical shifts in society and technology which left the individuals wanting to make more sense of the rapidly evolving world. Bauhaus masters understood that the architecture ought to serve as a common denominator – bringing simplicity to the complicated reality. It is now incumbent upon our generation to determine which traits of the expansive digital civilization are the enduring values, and as such deserve to be carefully preserved.

This calls for a New Bauhaus – a creative, experimental incubator for designing the spaces for tomorrow.

As foreseen by Gropius, such a result cannot be achieved alone – only by working together can solutions be found that transcend the limitations of the individual. Formally, it entails creating a new format for education focused on multifaceted collaboration.
