We are an international university at home in the unique, cultural city of Weimar. We are a vibrant institution, not a museum. We invoke this tremendous paradigm to answer central questions regarding art and culture, technology, science and society using modern methods. This also includes the critical analysis of the Bauhaus history and its historical impact, which is part of the contradictory history of progress that began almost 100 years ago.
In order to meet these requirements, we have carefully created the profile of our university which is focused on our four faculties: Architecture and Urbanism, Civil Engineering, Art and Design, and Media. Experimentation and excellence prevail throughout these faculties in which transdisciplinary projects and cooperations in research and education are also conducted.
