New European Bauhaus at Venice Biennale 2023

On 25-26 May, our partner IUAV Venezia hosted a Collateral Event of the Biennale Architettura 2023. This New European Bauhaus event, titled “Radical yet possible future space solutions”, was co-organised by European Commission and comprised an international conference and the “Radical NEB Labs” workshop series.

“You may have seen many cities in the world, almost all cities in the world, but when you see Venice, you will be amazed”. President Ursula von der Leyen quoted Montesquieu, touched by the beauty of Venice which she was visiting for the first time:

«In Venice, generations of architects have created a unique balance between man-made beauty and natural beauty. There can be no better place to host the Biennale and the New European Bauhaus. I’m glad that you have chosen the title of this year’s Biennale The laboratory of the future. Because the New European Bauhaus is just that: a laboratory of the future».
