On September 30, 2023, we celebrated the opening of the New Regional Bauhaus with over 120 guests in Heerlen, Promenade 14. 

In their welcoming speeches, Heerlen's Mayor Roel Wever, Vice-Rector Prof. Brück-Dürkop and Director of Stadsregio Parkstadt Peter Bertholet emphasized the importance of the New Regional Bauhaus for cross-border cooperation in the field of urban design and regional development.

The New Regional Bauhaus is a place for teaching and research, but also for the transfer of knowledge in the Rhine-Meuse region. In line with the UNESCO Chair, the focus is on cultural heritage and urbanism, but also on issues relating to transformation and structural change on a large scale. The Master's program Transforming City Regions serves this purpose in particular.
