Berlin Salon & Party to discuss the Collective
In Tokyo, you can rent a cuddle. In Berlin, you can meet us at Friends Space (FvF). Both deal with urban loneliness and how sharing can help remedy that.
reSITE is excited to host a salon with influential artists, architects and curators. The event will take place in Berlin at the Friends Space (FvF). It is curated by Studio Lukas Feireiss, in partnership with Airbnb.
Imagine one gorgeous Berlin venue, one evening salon and party with exclusive international guests to share their views on a few essential questions of today: this is reSITE's Berlin Salon!
Collective, commons, sharing: an infinite space for new opportunities in cities. What are the constraints of the collective? reSITE cooperated with Lukas Feireiss (Berlin) and Goethe-Institut (Prague) to curate a diverse panel of international guests. Berlin Salon "My City / Your City: Constraints of the Collective" will take place on Friday, 1st December 2017. We are excited to host Martin Rein-Cano, enfant terrible of today's world architecture scene and the designer of the fascinating pink square on the planet; the curator of the German Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale Making Heimat Anna Scheuermann; and Dutch visual artist and writer Charlie Koolhaas. Be part of this evening about the pros and cons of the commons in today and future cities!
Let's party after the discussion, with our favorite Prague's DJ and drinks on us!
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.
Martin Rein-Cano is a landscape architect based in Berlin who founded Topotek 1. He talks to reSITE about how migrants and refugees impact the culture of a city by making it multicultural and positively altering the development of the city.
Landscape architect Martin Rein-Cano discusses the integration of migrant communities in design for multicultural cities, highlighting his Superkilen park in Copenhagen. By incorporating physical items from local immigrant communities, Rein-Cano sought to develop a built environment directly reflecting the neighborhoods that surround the public park.
Lukas Feireiss, author of Memories of the Moon Age and director of Studio Lukas Feireiss, discusses the history of humanity's dreams to reach the moon. He goes through from the first astronaut to current ambitions in space, bringing his personal passion of space travel.
