Between November 2020 and May 2021, arkitekturo challenged architecture students from all around the world to imagine how the Bauhaus Campus would look like if the iconic school from early 1900 were to re-open its doors a century after it was first established.
Over 1700 students from 82 different countries worked on this brief to submit 388 original and unique proposals, all of which can be seen on the competition’s page.
The jury, which included addenda architects, authors of the recently inaugurated Bauhaus Museum in Dessau, just a half a mile away from the Campus competition site, unanimously selected the project “Performatic Machine” by the CCMM team, formed by Alejandro Cuadro and Romina Mangini from Universidad de la República Uruguay.
Their project successfully solved the brief at a number of scales, from urban planning to furniture design, and showed that these two very mature students are ready to face real-life, complex projects.

The second prize was awarded to the BauhausSlovenia team, formed by Tamara Nunčič, Iva Živković, and Davor Žebovec from the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia.
The jury highlighted their ability to use a simple circle as the generating geometry through their building, at all scales, and their capacity to create an open fluid space where necessary but also the necessary and desired privacy when needed.

The third prize went to team MKAT, formed by Gabriele Mori and Polina Kotmysheva, from Samara State Technical University, Russia.
Although their project might seem taken from a sci-fiction movie at first, the truth is it raises a lot of interesting questions and suggests truly unique architectural solutions that, as far as the jury and the organization know, have not been proposed ever before.
Their vision might be ahead of our time, but close enough to be achievable with a bit of imagination.
