We cordially invite you to the opening ceremony of the "New Regional Bauhaus" established by the Faculty of Architecture at RWTH Aachen University. The "New Regional Bauhaus" is intended to highlight the importance of regional planning, especially in addressing the global challenges of sustainability and inclusion. Another crucial aspect is the focus on regional spatial quality. The location of the "New Regional Bauhaus" in Heerlen underlines the idea that regional thinking transcends municipal, provincial and national boundaries while still taking the local context into account.
