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!

“Dull, inert cities, it is true, do contain the seeds of their own destruction and little else. But lively, diverse, intense cities contain the seeds of their own regeneration, with energy enough to carry over for problems and needs outside themselves”
The list for most livable cities of 2019 from The Economist Intelligence Unit’s Global Liveability Index has kept Vienna in the top spot for the second year, kicking out the previous first place holder, Melbourne out of its seven-year-long reign as the most livable city in the world.

“Architecture is almost like a virus; once we start thinking about architecture, it is very hard to let it go or get rid of it because it connects to all fields of society.”
