The Bauhaus Award

The first International Bauhaus Award will be presented on September 16,
One prize will be awarded for outstanding achievements in architecture
and urban development, a second in art and new media, while the third
award is a special prize for academic and conceptual work. The Bauhaus
Dessau Foundation  will be conferring the Bauhaus Award every two years
in the future. It focuses on the themes at the center of the Bauhaus'
work, namely city and urban design.

The Bauhaus Dessau Foundation has asked more than 100 international
designers from various backgrounds to bring forward potential candidates
for the award. Following a pre-selection by the jury, successful
applicants will have the opportunity to present their work at the
Bauhaus on September 16, 2000. On this day, the final decision will be

Thematic Focus: Event City

The urban entertainment culture of the 21st century, the event city, is
made up of theme worlds given over to spectacles, enjoyment, consumption
and entertainment.. Malls, theme parks, raves and leisure centers have
become hallmarks of big cities. Urban entertainment centers bring
together shopping, entertainment and event under one roof and are
celebrated around the world as successful examples for the
revitalization of inner cities. How can architecture and art maintain
their claim to provide guidance when our entire everyday world is
increasingly stylized into a holistic work of art? What can architecture
and art contribute to the design and integration of an event city? The
Bauhaus will address these issues and others at the 2nd International
Bauhaus Kolleg starting in September 2000.
