The Bauhaus of the Seas Sails (BoSS) is a project conceived under the call for the development of the New European Bauhaus (NEB) by the European Union. The project aims to promote renewed ethical and aesthetic regenerative development from a diverse range of dimensions of our relationship with the sea.

In BoSS, TBA21–⁠Academy will oversee the development of demonstrator projects across seven European cities within the three-year duration of the project. Through guidance on commissioning and curated interactions with practitioners from various fields, we will help cities develop initiatives that embrace the New European Bauhaus principles of sustainability, inclusion and aesthetics.

The vision of the Bauhaus of the Seas is to demonstrate and archive solutions for climate neutrality with a particular focus on coastal cities as an interface to healthy seas, ocean and water bodies envisioning a new triangle of sustainability, inclusion, and design focused on the most important global natural space – our water bodies. The BoS will offer opportunities to engage with communities for an environmentally sustainable, socially fair, and aesthetically appealing transition. Currently, seven cities, located in four different regions and aquatic ecosystems in Portugal(estuary), Italy (lagoon and gulf), Sweden/Germany (strait/river), and the Netherlands/Belgium (delta) have committed to the Bauhaus of the Seas network supporting mission-oriented pilots of the New European Bauhaus and showcase innovative solutions.
