"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.

    A New Generation of Architects with Chris Precht

    A New Generation of Architects with Chris Precht

    When it comes to urban regeneration, not many are thinking about it the way Chris Precht is. Studio Precht’s modular buildings with interwoven, natural geometry bring “being green” to a whole other level. They are all variations on a theme - vertical farming meant for city-living - and aim to reconnect our lives to our food production by bringing it back into our cities, and our minds through architecture. Hear from Chris as he discusses the importance of authenticity, creating spaces that activate our senses, and connecting ourselves to our objective reality to solve the problems of our time.

    Designing on a Human Scale with Thomas Heatherwick

    Designing on a Human Scale with Thomas Heatherwick

    For Thomas Heatherwick, architecture and urban design go hand-in-hand. Like with all of his projects, he strives to consider them from a human scale capturing the essence of what already exists. His holistic approach brings a thoughtful dimension to architecture, design and urban spaces. Joining the interview is ArchDaily editor, Christele Harrouk, to explore deeper into how Heatherwick approaches his projects with an inspiring amount of integrity and humility.

    Design and the City Trailer

    Design and the City Trailer

    Design and the City is a podcast about the ways we can use design to make cities more livable and lovable.

    reSITE is excited to announce the launch of its first-ever official podcast, Design and the City. We interviewed nine of our most prolific and promising speakers from reSITE 2019 REGENERATE for a more intimate, in-depth dig into their current projects and outlooks on the future of our cities. Hear from Thomas Heatherwick (Heatherwick Studios), Chris Precht (Studio Precht), Leona Lynen (Haus der Statistik) and Ravi Naidoo (Design Indaba) among others.

    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 work together. We need to have conversations, debates, discussions, and we need to create a little bit of that friction where the magic happens. We use our flagship event to do just that and frame the future of cities through as many different perspectives as we can. This year we aim to create conversations around how cities can regenerate themselves from every angle.

    reSITE is a global non-profit acting to improve the urban environment, both on the stage at our events, and off. We work at the intersection of architecture, urbanism, politics, culture, and economics, acting as a catalyst for social action and innovative leadership. We encourage the exchange of ideas about making cities more livable, competitive, resilient, inclusive, mobile and designing with humans in mind to protect and public space, architecture, and sustainable development in cities.
