Quality architecture for all cities and regions: exchange of good practice - 12WS21429

Tuesday, October 12, 2021 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM · 1 hr. 30 min. (CET)


In the context of the European Green Deal and in particular of the New European Bauhaus, designing and building beautiful, sustainable and inclusive living spaces has gained increasing importance. As part of the Council Work Plan for Culture 2019-2022, 39 experts have been nominated by Member States to discuss High-quality architecture and built environment for everyone. This workshop will present the resulting report, which builds on the eight quality criteria defined by the Davos Baukultur Quality Tool and makes recommendations for local/regional authorities and other stakeholders wishing to improve their built environment. The findings will be illustrated through good practices from various cities/regions, notably from the Navarra region in northern Spain. Quality architecture and principles promoted by the New European Bauhaus should matter to all places and projects, whatever their size, and be a priority for local and regional authorities as it contributes to quality of life, citizens' well-being and ultimately the common good.
