June 19-20, 2014 / Forum Karlin, Prague

The third international reSITE conference sought to connect the themes of how cities and landscapes are developing in the new economy.

Our two-day program in the newly opened Forum Karlin consisted of presentations, workshops, lectures and discussion panels that featured inspiring ideas, interesting solutions and unexpected encounters: diverse contributions with a common goal - to achieve a better life in our cities

More than 660 people attended our conference, and they represented a broad array of sectors: government administration (137), architects (110), non-profit organizations (83), academics (82), investors and developers (72) from across Central and Eastern Europe. All of them contributed to a discussion about the development of higher quality public architecture, public space and public landscape in the changing, new economy. The conference was organized in collaboration with the Institute for Planning and Development in Prague.

reSITE is becoming the most influential venue in the field of urbanism in our country and maybe soon in Europe. I appreciate especially the effort to mutually combine the theory and a practice of planning, which became separated throughout the last century.
Pavel Hnilicka, Architect, Advisor for the Strategic Plan of Prague


The conference kicked-off with the famous American neo-liberal economist Edward Glaeser. The strategy for urban development in Prague and the Czech Republic was presented by the Mayor of Prague, Tomas Hudecek, and the Minster of Regaional Developent, Vera Jourova respectively. A leading figure in the world of architecture, Benedetta Tagliabue, presented a unique project of revitalization of the Barcelona market Santa Katarina.
