IBA Heidelberg is a temporary laboratory. Our motto: Knowledge | Based | Urbanism. Because a city that invests in avant-garde knowledge facilities invests in the future. Through local and international networks, the IBA will through 2022 weave a net of experts, supporters and active participants. The projects include innovative schools and research buildings, museums and student housing. However, just as important as the actual built results are the IBA’s invisible achievements. In Heidelberg it is initiating a dialog on the city of tomorrow.
