"Design and the City" is published by reSITE, a global nonprofit acting to improve the urban environment, about the ways we can use design to make cities more livable and lovable.

Cities are the sum of designers, developers, artists, citizens, public officials, entrepreneurs, and the displaced, but rarely do each of these constituencies gather in the same room, let alone speak the same language, and cities suffer for it. reSITE is literally that room. In order to create a city that is truly for everyone, we need to have conversations on how to design and build cities with humans in mind.

    Giving Design a Higher Purpose with Ravi Naidoo

    Giving Design a Higher Purpose with Ravi Naidoo

    Exuberant. Optimistic. Romantic. Three words Ravi Naidoo, the advocate who put African design on the map, used to describe himself. Ravi's story is one of reinvention. Just as South Africa was entering a period of newly found democracy, Ravi found an impetus to change his career. Over 20 years later, he is the driving force behind Design Indaba, arguably the most influential design event in the world. The event takes place in Cape Town every year, and it's only the tip of the iceberg. They consider themselves a do-tank, rather than a think-tank, pushing the boundaries of design with the simple question—what is design for?

    Regenerating Cities, Transforming Communities with Christopher Cabaldon

    The longest-serving mayor in West Sacramento’s history, the man behind the city’s outstanding urban regeneration that put it on the map as one of the most livable small towns in the United States, and an LGBTQ+ advocate, Christopher Cabaldon is a model city official. During his on-going, 20-year-long seat in office, the California capital's adjacent city underwent an incredible transformation from a former industrial town to an urbanized, livable community.

    Human-Centered Smart Cities with Marianthi Tatari

    Human-Centered Smart Cities with Marianthi Tatari

    As a true systems thinker, Marianthi Tatari, Associate Director and Senior Architect at UNStudio, takes a scalar approach to design, addressing issues of experience and sense of place in various scales and typologies. During our discussion, we dissect different aspects of city-making that threaten the quality of life such as monofunctional spaces and commoditized smart cities and how to approach designing them with optimism.

    Creating Emotional Connections to Nature with Yosuke Hayano

    Creating Emotional Connections to Nature with Yosuke Hayano

    "How do you bring modern architecture into the future and connect humans with nature?” That is the question Yosuke Hayano, principal partner for MAD Architects brings to the table when the studio approaches any of their projects. They are creating a vision for the future city. As they’ve put it, they have been “committed to developing futuristic, organic, technologically advanced designs that embody a contemporary interpretation of the Eastern affinity for nature”. During our interview with Yosuke, we examined how they are able to create that vision as a journey for people to meet nature through architecture.
