About us

The Federal Foundation of Baukultur is an independent entity. Its purpose is to promote Baukultur, given that it contributes significantly to the quality of life in both cities and the countryside.

The Foundation’s mission is to make the built environment a shared concern, which is why it promotes high-quality building design and construction. In addition, it functions as a platform for promoting public discussion on Baukultur through events, joint projects, and publications, and for expanding and strengthening existing networks.

Shaping and initiating public and professional discourse for higher quality in the built environment is the core mission of the Baukultur Foundation.

Our events and publications therefore take an multidisciplinary approach involving various experts and stakeholders across Germany and beyond. For example, the editorial process of the Baukultur Report – our main bi-annual publication – includes several workshops and focus group meetings with a wide range of institutions and individuals who contribute their wealth of knowledge. We can build on an extensive network of influential Baukultur stakeholders and look forward to hearing from you.
