My City / Your City: City of 2050
An Evening Salon powered by reSITE
reSITE Salon, Prague
March 4th, 2020
Limited capacity, registration required.
The next reSITE Salon: City of 2050 will bring together people focused on finding solutions to enact positive future developments today.
While accommodating the growing population, cities need to lead in addressing many global challenges of the 21st century, including resource scarcity, climate change, ageing population and rising socio-economic inequalities. Can urban design, architecture and strategic planning for transport and sustainability aid in solving these issues? What other questions will we tackle?
- Instead of investing in maintaining the past, how can we systematically develop a city of 2050?
- What are our priorities and where should we focus first?
Which city is implementing a comprehensive approach to citymaking, that includes densification, public areas redevelopment, water plans and focus on circular economy?
Can a cultural artifact foster connections between citizens and authorities and mobilize them to act together?
reSITE salon is back and ready to explore one of the most pertinent urbanist questions of our time. Come for the talks and the drinks, stay for the intimate setting, networking opportunities and inspiration.

Saskia Sassen, professor of sociology at Columbia University, discusses the migrant experience relating to land use and the urban habitat. She focuses on the privatizing and corporatizing of modern cities and how these trends affect the people living in cities, especially disadvantaged and ignored populations.
Enric Battle, architect and partner at Battle i Roig discusses the integration of biodiversity and infrastructure in urban spaces by looking to biodiversity, connectivity, and productivity to shape urban green spaces.
Deputy Mayor of Paris Jean-Louis Missika argues that projects to address things like air polluting, housing shortages, and car traffic cannot just be tackled in terms of engineering, but must be centered around the people using these systems on a daily basis in order to have a livable city.
Since 2012, the reSITE team has been creating a platform for innovative and inspiring ideas in urbanism, design, and architecture. We are excited to launch into a new decade of making our cities and futures brighter!
Socially conscious designers leverage economic, environmental, political and cultural factors and consider them in their efforts to improve the livability of the built environment.
Cities benefit tremendously from the incorporation of greenspace, a connection to nature that is an arena to cultivate community.
Technology is embedded in contemporary cities. From surveillance cameras to street lights, architects, scientists, planners, and engineers are finding new ways to streamline urban environments to improve the quality of life. Yet, some worry that increasing reliance on technology could lead to its potential abuse, especially when it comes to personal privacy.
Within the fields of architecture and urban planning, women are making their case for creating built environments that serve all genders. To close the gap of gender inequality and make spaces more inclusive and safe for women, the unique perspective provided by these speakers is essential to augmenting our idea of design. To move towards more inclusive cities, women must be at the forefront of change.
