WHAT IS reSITE?

​reSITE is ​an international platform to exchange ideas about making cities more livable​, competitive and resilient​.

reSITE is a nonprofit platform working at the intersection of architecture, urbanism, politics, culture, and economics. reSITE acts as a catalyst for social action and innovative leadership; an international platform to exchange ideas about making cities more livable, competitive and resilient. We protect and promote public space, architecture, and sustainable development in cities. Based in Prague, we are at the forefront of innovative changes in Central and Eastern Europe and for the first time in the Czech Republic, are fostering collaboration, dialogue and social innovation between the public and experts in fields of design, finance and development, municipality leadership and community advocacy. Why? To stimulate action for sustainable urban design and therefore better cities. We stand for public space.

reSITE highlights how collaboration and design thinking can improve life in cities. We advise and develop leaders across the public, private, civic sector. We organize conferences, festivals, workshops, design competitions, urban games, films, bike rides, discussions, exhibitions & public space interventions.

On June 16-17, 2016, for the fifth consecutive year, Prague hosted the largest concentration of the world’s top architects, urbanists, urban planners and landscape architects and economists. 49 leading thinkers from 20 countries spoke at reSITE 2016: Cities in Migration. Visionaries, experts, mayors of major cities and representatives of outstanding civic initiatives presented innovative solutions and strategies for European and Western cities to come to terms successfully and painlessly with the influx of new residents. The professional conference was complemented by a rich program for the public, taking place in Prague’s public space.
