reSITE Joins Forces with Dezeen for the Virtual Design Festival
We are incredibly excited to announce we are joining Dezeen's Virtual Design Festival! Save the date for April 27th and dive into a full day of ideas and inspiration via reSITE lectures released exclusively on this occasion!
Virtual Design Festival is a digital event bringing the design and architecture community together during the unprecedented challenges that have come with a global pandemic and quarantine. Dezeen founder and editor-in-chief, Marcus Fairs aims to create a virtual space to celebrate the culture and commerce of our industry through exploration of its capacity to adapt and respond to these extraordinary circumstances. On this occasion, reSITE will exclusively release five full lectures from REGENERATE which took place in Prague last September.
"In the new reality shaped and defined by the COVID-19 outbreak, there is a whole new level of urgency to rethink our urban environments. reSITE will present the thoughts and work of seven guests who met in Prague to share their out-of-the-box thinking and explore both the rebirth of cities and the generations of people living within" says reSITE founder Martin Barry.
Dezeen's first virtual event kicked off on April 15th, 2020 with messages from 35 architects and designers, recorded in their self-isolation. While pandemic precautions shrank the possibilities, these thought leaders opened the door to experiment with new formats, inspiring and fueling this virtual, large-scale meeting.
VDF has confirmed dozens of institutions, organizations and personalities to participate, such as the MAAT museum, The World Around, Serpentine Galleries, Dutch Design Week, and a roster of visual artists, musicians, filmmakers and curators, all collaborating on the program.
