Martin Barry

Founder and Chairman

Prague (CZ)

Martin is a landscape architect, and the Founder and Chairman of reSITE. He is also the Founder and CEO of Manifesto Market, a container village concept combining gastronomy and culture and aiming to revive underused urban sites. At reSITE, Martin leads the team with strategy, fundraising and overall goals while providing creative and program direction for current and future reSITE international projects and events. As a former Associate at W Architecture in New York City where he worked 8 years, Martin led multi-disciplinary teams on complex landscape projects all over the globe, collaborating on urban waterfronts, parks, plazas and universities in the United States, Saudi Arabia, China, United Arab Emirates, Haiti, Canada, Europe and Mexico. With degrees in history, business, and landscape architecture, and spending his younger years training in various construction trades he is uniquely positioned to understand and manage the disparate forces on complex projects. Because of this diverse background, he is adept at negotiating the distinct and often competing perspectives between municipalities, architects, investors, cultural needs and communities. Martin is a Fulbright Scholar, and it was during his fellowship in the Czech Republic when he dreamed-up the idea to start reSITE. He is also a Fellow with the Design Trust for Public Space and is a Registered Landscape Architect in the United States who lectures about landscape architecture, urban design and collaboration at conferences and universities in the United States, Europe and Asia. Above all, he is committed to a human-centered design approach that focuses on quality urban investments that simultaneously benefit ecology, economy and culture for the next generation of urban dwellers.
