NEB ambition

The ultimate ambition of the New European Bauhaus is to achieve transformation. To do this, the NEB Compass has identified specific levels of ambition that outline the desired outcomes for each of the NEB values.

Action areas

These areas refer to the five key domains of intervention that CrAFt's New European Bauhaus Impact Model considers essential for guiding and evaluating complex urban initiatives.

Participation level

The participation level refers to the degree or extent to which individuals or groups are actively involved or engaged in a particular activity, project, or process. It assesses the depth of their involvement, contributions, and commitment, ranging from minimal or passive participation to active and dedicated participation.

NEB values

The New European Bauhaus (NEB) aims to promote the values of sustainability, aesthetics, and inclusion in the design and transformation of urban spaces. It emphasises the integration of environmental, social, and economic considerations to create harmonious and innovative living environments.

Implementation Stage

According to the Smart City Guidance Package, there are seven stages to plan and implement smart city projects. These stages propose a logical and coherent roadmap for city initiatives involving many stakeholders.

NEBoj se spoluprace! – an interdisciplinary workshop

This is a ten-day intensive workshop focused on interdisciplinary collaboration in creating public space, aimed at introducing students to the concept of the New European Bauhaus and improving their ability to work in interdisciplinary teams. The workshop includes lectures by experts in urban innovation and sustainable urban development, working in teams to design interventions and presenting the result. The interdisciplinary teams (architecture, energy, ICT, etc.) will work on designing interactive exhibits or temporary installations in public spaces that will support the involvement of the local community in addressing Prague’s sustainable development challenges.

Learning goals

  • learning of the concept of the New European Bauhaus
  • improving skills to work in interdisciplinary teams

Learning and research forms of the activity/course

  • familiarization with the New European Bauhaus
  • cooperation in an interdisciplinary team
  • working on current issues in Prague
  • expanding horizons in various fields

The main activity/course deliverables

The workshop was divided into ten working days. The introductory part was theoretical, consisting of technical lectures that provided students with a basis for the subsequent work. The main part of the workshop consisted of independent work by student teams. During this time, project coordinators and mentors were available, and students had the opportunity to take advantage of tutorials by selected experts. During this session, “checkpoints” were set to monitor the progress of the work. On the last day, there was a final presentation to the representatives of Prague, where each team presented the idea embodied by the selected theme and how to present this theme in public spaces to attract people’s interest.

Evaluating process

The evaluation took place after the final presentations. It was an expert evaluation of the topic. In addition to the output, the work of the students and teams was evaluated. The focus was on student activity, their roles in the team, and their contributions.
