Bauhaus 21 is a movement that aims to develop and shape the future of life and living in the 21st century.

Some of the key changes in our world today are globalization, the internet, and computers with emerging artificial intelligence. This has resulted in the interconnection and networking of societies in real time.

Global population growth poses the greatest challenge to human civilization as we know it. Natural resources still have to be exploited on an unsustainable scale in order to feed the world's growing population.

At the same time that environmental destruction is occuring, we are in the process of climate change, a global warming which can only be mitigated but not stopped or even reversed. The effects will pose major problems for life on the planet.

The reason for climate change is the emission of greenhouse gases, such as Co2 and its accumulation in the atmosphere. The way people live and work contributes significantly to this. It is undisputed that more than 50% of greenhouse emissions are caused by the construction and operation of real estate.
