reSITE 2017: In/visible City

At #reSITE2017 we will focus on how the invisible shapes the visible in a city. What does that mean? We are fascinated by the anatomy of cities. We will focus on where design meets infrastructure and the presence of these vital systems in the architecture and landscape of cities. We will explore everything that makes a city functional, that drives the economy and consumes a consequent part of municipal budgets - despite being invisible like technical infrastructure such as water. We will present and debate the urban landscapes, buildings, networks, and social participation processes that help define urban design of the future. We will showcase high quality projects, the interface of infrastructure with private developments and citizens, awarded designs and smart approaches.

“It was a pleasure to be part of the conference - I thought it brilliantly well conceived, organized and executed: far better than the vast majority I speak at or attend.”
Henry Foy, The Financial Times, at reSITE 2016
“A fantastic event overall, where a very current issue was discussed by some of the best subject matter experts.”
World Architecture Community, at reSTE 2016
“reSITE creates a common ground where people can come from different parts of the world and open a conversation that doesn't really happen elsewhere.”
Michael Kimmelman, The New York Times, at reSTE 2016
“It was great being back at reSITE. Thank you for the perfect organization.”
Lukas Feireiss, Studio Lukas Feireiss, at reSTE 2016
With over 40 top global and local thought leaders speaking, reSITE 2017 will be the premier international urbanism event in Europe.
reSITE is inviting today's most inspiring and innovative architects, landscape architects, planners, municipal leaders, real estate developers and city makers to exchange ideas, push the limits of how we think about city making and give practical examples with successful solutions.

Find new opportunities, partners, collaborators and ways to improve our cities at reSITE.
