Articulo editorial per Ursula Von der Leyen, Presidente del Commission europee

🇪🇺 Neolatino:

Chicago, Tel Aviv, Ascona, Dessau, Kaliningrad. Paul Klee, Kandinsky, Anni Albers, László Moholy-Nagy, Iwao Yamawaki. Fundate in Weimar in 1919 per Walter Gropius e su copaniones, le Bauhaus esse un movimento pro le architectura, le arte, e le projectation que assumeva rapidemente un dimension international. Desde ultra un seculo iste typo de Modernismo modella le pensata creative, le designo del mobiliario, e le paisages urban in tote le mundo. Combinante arte e pragmatismo, le ingeniose e rational avanguarda del Bauhaus habe incidite concretemente super le transition social et economic verso le industrialisation del seculo XX.

Cento annos plus tarde noi nos retrova ad affrontar nove defias global: le cambio climatic, le pollution, le digitalisation, e un explosion demographic que secundo le previsiones facera augmentar le population mundial usque 10 milliardos de personas intra le annos 50. Iste disveloppamentos vade mano in le mano cum un crescentia economic apparentemente illimitate al detrimento de nostre benesser, de nostre planeta, e de nostre limitate benes natural irrenovabile.

Le edificios e le infrastructuras son responsabile de al minus 40% de tote emissiones de gas a effecto conservatori. Le architectura moderne utilisa in large misura materiales como le cemento e le aciero, cuje production demanda quantitates immense de energia, e que emitte CO2 derectemente in le atmosphera tra reationes chimic.

Tote signales puncta al mesme direction: on debe repensar e reprogrammar; e in iste processo Europa pote e debe assumer un rolo de guida. Ecce proque le Commission faceva del Pacto Verde Europee le centro de su action. Le Pacto Verde aperi un serie de nove opportunitates e representa nostre nove strategia de crescentia. Le scopo primari es que Europa sia le prime continente cum impacto climatic zero in 2050. Isto requirera ben plus quam un simplice reduction del emissiones. On ha besonio de un modello economic que pote restituer al planeta lo que es subtracte ab illo, un modello basate super un economia circular alimentate per energias renovabile.

Sed on debe vader ultra le pur aspectos technic de un projecto ambiental o economic. Le Pacto Verde pro Europa debe representar anque – e specialmente – un nove projecto cultural commun. Omne movimento habe su proprie esthetica que dona su proprie sensation, dunque iste cambiamento systemic debe esser characterisate per un impression stilistic distinctive, facente converger esthetica e sustenibilitate.

Il es pro isto que noi van lancear un nove movimento Bauhaus europee, un spatio collaborative de designo e creation, ubi architectos, artistas, studentes, scientistas, ingenieres, e projectatores labora unite pro facer de iste vision un realitate. Le Nove Bauhaus Europee essera un fortia trainante pro animar le Pacto Verde Europee in maniera attrahente, innovative, e anthropocentric. Le movimento vole esser basate super sustenibilitate, accessibilitate, et esthetica pro portar le Pacto Verde plus vicin al vita quotidian del populo europee, e render natural le recyclage, le uso de energias renovabile, e le protection del biodiversitate.

Le gente deberea poter perciper, vider, e viver le Pacto Verde: sia gratias a un industria de construction que implica materiales natural como ligno e bambu, sia gratias a un architectonica adoptante formas e principios proxime al natura, que tene in consideration le ecosystema ben desde le projectation, que plana e applica le conceptos cardine de sustenibilitate e reusabilitate.

In ultra le nove Bauhaus europee deberea profitar anque del altere mega-tendentia revolutionari de nostre seculo: le digitalisation, que es alterante sempre plus nostre forma mentis e modus operandi. In futuro le casas, e in general le habitation de burgos e urbes, functionara melio gratias a lor “gemine digital”. Le simulation informatic consenti e consentira de facto meliorar le optiones projectual in terminos de efficientia del resursas, reusabilitate, o impacto super le ambiente e le climate local. Le objectivo es realisar citates plus vivibile in un neutralitate climatic.

A New European Bauhaus

Op-ed article by Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission

Chicago, Tel Aviv, Ascona, Dessau, Kaliningrad. Paul Klee, Kandinsky, Anni Albers, László Moholy-Nagy, Iwao Yamawaki. The “State Bauhaus”, founded in Weimar in 1919 by Walter Gropius and friends, quickly became an international movement for architecture, art and design. It has influenced creative thinking, furniture as well as city landscapes throughout the world for over a century. By combining art and practicality, the ingenious avant-garde of the Bauhaus literally helped shape the social and economic transition to an industrial society and the 20th century.

A hundred years later, we are facing new global challenges: climate change, pollution, digitalization and a demographic explosion predicted to increase the world’s population to up to 10 billion people by mid-century. These developments are going hand in hand with a seemingly limitless economic growth at the expense of our wellbeing, our planet and our limited natural resources.

Buildings and infrastructures are responsible for at least 40% of all greenhouse gas emissions. Modern constructions are largely based on cement and steel, which both consume an immense amount of energy to produce and even directly releases CO2 through chemical reactions.

All the signs point the same way: we must rethink and replan. And Europe can and must play a leading role in this. That is why we have made the European Green Deal our priority. It opens up a host of new opportunities and is our new growth strategy. The headline goal is for Europe to be the first climate-neutral continent in 2050.This will require more than cutting emissions. We need an economic model that gives back to the planet what it takes away from it through a circular economy that is powered by renewable energy.

But I want this to be more than an environmental or economic project. The European Green Deal must also – and especially -– be a new cultural project for Europe. Every movement has its own look and feel. And this systemic change needs its own aesthetics – blending design and sustainability.

This is why we will launch a new European Bauhaus movement – a collaborative design and creative space, where architects, artists, students, scientists, engineers and designers work together to make this vision a reality. The New European Bauhaus will be a driving force to bring the European Green Deal to life in an attractive, and innovative and human-centered way. It will be a movement based on sustainability, accessibility and aesthetics to bring the European Green Deal closer to people and make recycling, renewable energies and biodiversity natural.

People should be able to feel, see and experience the European Green Deal. Whether thanks to a construction industry that uses natural materials such as wood or bamboo. Or architecture that adopts near-natural forms and construction principles, that considers ecosystems from the outset, that enables and plans for sustainability and reusability.

The new European Bauhaus should also take advantage of the other revolutionary megatrend of our century. Digitization is increasingly changing the way we think and act. In the future, houses, settlements and cities will work and function better thanks to their “digital twin”. Computer simulations will make it possible to improve design decisions in terms of resource efficiency, reusability or impact on the environment and local climate. The goal is to achieve climate-neutral cities that are more livable.
