The year 2019 marks the centennial anniversary of 
the Bauhaus, one of modern Germany's most 
influential art and design schools. On the 
occasion of this momentous anniversary, we are 
holding an international competition for creative 
professionals to present their designs and 
visions for a better world.

How will we make our growing cities healthier 
places to live? How can we ensure quality housing 
for all? How can we achieve environmentally 
friendly mobility? How can we reduce the flood of 
plastic waste? How can we dress comfortably 
without exploiting others?

The international competition "beyond bauhaus - 
prototyping the future" will award prizes to 
twenty groundbreaking design concepts that 
address relevant social issues and contribute to 
making our world a healthier, fairer, more 
sustainable and better place. Projects will be 
assessed on creative vision, sustainability and 
potential social impact.

The competition is open to designers and 
creatives from across the world and seeks 
prototypes in the development stage as well as 
pioneering projects already implemented, from all 
design disciplines: from basic research and 
materials science to product design, fashion, 
architecture, urban development, mobility and 
future technologies (for example: coding software 
or 3D printing processes).

An international jury will select the 20 winners 
and they will be invited to Berlin to present 
their projects exclusively in an exhibition from 
August 16 to September 1, 2019 as part of 100 
years of Bauhaus.
*Travel and accommodation costs will be covered by the organiser.

The exhibition venue is the CLB Berlin at Aufbau 
Haus-a dynamic creative hub in the capital with 
the design akademie berlin, creative agencies, 
start-up scene, publishing house, club and much 
more. The exhibition is accompanied by events 
including talks, workshops and a summer school. 
This offers numerous opportunities for 
professional exchange and networking with 
Berlin's creative scene.

This competition is supported by the German 
Federal Foreign Office, Lotto Foundation Berlin 
and SAP SE.
