Bauhaus of the Seas – NEB Co-Design Event is being co-organized by Câmara Municipal de Lisboa, Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program, Instituto Superior Técnico and MAAT – Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology.
20 of May 2021
09:00 to 18:30 (Lisbon Time – GMT+1)
The first Bauhaus of the Seas co-design event is an opportunity to learn about and participate in the design of the New European Bauhaus initiative and learn how to contribute to the Bauhaus of the Seas vision.
The ”Bauhaus of the Seas” was the first thematic network proposed in the context of the co-creation phase of the New European Bauhaus. The Bauhaus of the seas, as “marhaus” (literally “the sea as our home”) or “baumar” (“the sea as a space for creation and impact entrepreneurship”), aims to promote renewed ethical and aesthetic regenerative development from a widely diverse range of dimensions of our continued relationship with the sea. This network will involve fostering a school of interdisciplinary experimentation and entrepreneurship, bound to shape a generation of designers, architects, engineers, artists, managers, and scientists around sustainable design solutions for coastal regions and the sea.
