Beyond Bauhaus – Prototyping the Future



The year 2019 marks the centennial anniversary of the Bauhaus, one of modern Germany’s most influential art and design schools. On the occasion of this momentous anniversary, we are holding an international competition for creative professionals to present their designs and visions for a better world.

We are seeking concepts and prototypes that address relevant social issues, in ways both big and small, and that contribute to making the world a healthier, fairer, more sustainable and better place.

How will we make our growing cities healthier places to live? How can we ensure quality housing for all? How can we achieve environmentally friendly mobility? How can we reduce the flood of plastic waste? How can we dress comfortably without exploiting others?
