As a laboratory for the future of planning and construction, the Bauakademie is committed to sustainable, climate-friendly construction methods and interdisciplinary approaches to research. The Bauakademie will also apply these principles to the process of designing its future building on Schinkelplatz.
The Bauakademie supports this transformation by conducting interdisciplinary research and educational outreach on eight topics that will define construction in the 21st century: futures research, digitalization, innovation, sustainability, climate change, circular economy, urban development and housing.
