Reconstructing the Future for People and Planet at the Bauhaus Earth Conference


Francis Kéré and Ursula von der Leyen Kicked Off the “Reconstructing the Future for People and Planet” Conference at the Casina Pio IV in the Vatican Gardens, co-hosted by Bauhaus Earth and the Pontifical Academy of Sciences (PAS).  

The conference began with a speech by European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen. The extensive program brings together renowned scientists, architects, spatial planners, and policymakers to discuss how the built environment can be transformed from a source of climatic and social crises to a source of regeneration. 

On the first day of the conference, Francis Kéré, this year’s Pritzker Prize Laureate, and Ursula von der Leyen spoke at the MAXXI National Museum of 21st Century Art in Rome. Lesley Lokko, architect, and curator of next year’s Venice Architecture Biennale; Shigeru Ban, 2014 Pritzker Prize Laureate; Bjarke Ingels, and Wael Al Awar, recipient of the 2021 Venice Biennial Golden Lion, are among the invited speakers.  

The speeches are organized around the following themes:  

Construction Challenges and Solutions Around the World; Meeting the Bauhaus Earth Challenges – Sustainable, Inclusive, Beautiful; From Mining to Gardening; Natural and Digital Resources; and Settling the Unsettled. 

Bauhaus Earth, based in Potsdam and Berlin, is a non-profit organization that transforms the construction industry and construction policy into a creative force for environmental protection and systemic renewal. 

Bauhaus Earth, founded in 2019, brings together experts in architecture and planning, the arts, science, management, and industry. Bauhaus Earth contributes to the creation of buildings, cities, and landscapes that benefit our planet and its inhabitants through in-depth research, demonstration projects, and political propaganda. 

Bauhaus Earth receives financial support and is a partner of the Laudes Foundation. 

The charter, signed by eighteen scientists, architects, planners, and politicians from around the world, calls for the construction industry to be transformed from a contributor to climate change to a regenerative force. Recognizing the terrifying threat of climate collapse and global mass extinction, the Charter’s signatories are committed to the systemic transformation of our buildings and cities.
