Bauhaus and the city

Ninety years after the foundation of the Bauhaus school, the world of today is searching for concepts and ideas to face the many challenges for cities. But what has Bauhaus been and what was its perception of society? The main question is how the ideas of this tradition can be translated for a contemporary understanding of the cities in the 21ste century. Today, modern architecture and the Bauhaus needs to reflect on the complexities of urban life in a globalized world.
