Making Futures

Making Futures Bauhaus+ is an action research project that enquires into the future development of the architectural practice addressing questions of architecture as a collective form and architecture as a resource. Within the Bauhaus anniversary in 2019, Making Futures Bauhaus+ will host a summer school on designing possible futures and questioning their connection to the past future-imagination of the Bauhaus.

As a first step in this year and a half long process and inspired by the Artist Placement Group’s strategies of artistic insertions into existing (institutional) frameworks, Making Futures plugs into the Floating University by contributing to its public programming with a series of workshops that operate as collective acts, dedicated to enquire, learn and test future modes of architectural and urban action.

Following this, three mobile-workshops will travel to Istanbul, Palermo, Thüringen and Mexico on an effort not only to expand the field of research and the network but particularly to consider the project as an open, reflexive and practice driven format.

Making Futures Bauhaus+ is a cooperation between the Berlin University of the Arts and raumlaborberlin on the occasion of the Bauhaus’ centenary. Funded by the Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community.
