The price will increase on January 16th.
#RESONATELisbon is the fruit of a new partnership between the two co-organizers, both fostering innovation and globally relevant dialogue: MAAT offers a common ground for discovery and critical thinking that crosses art, architecture and technology. reSITE became a leading voice in Europe in the field of rethinking architecture and public space to make cities more livable and brings a 6-year experience in designing international, interactive and cross-disciplinary events.
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.
Executive Director of Invest Lisboa Rui Ramos-Pinto Coelho describes the rapid turn around of Lisbon from a poor city into a center of tourism, real estate investments, and entrepreneurship.
Michael Kimmelman, architecture critic for the New York Times, speaks to reSITE about how architects are responsible for creating healthy cities to address climate change, refugees, and urbanisation. In conversation with urban planners and designers, architects can create resilient neighborhoods and cities.
Caroline Bos, a Dutch urban planner and co-founder of the architectural design center UN Studio, questions the sustainability of our current cities and how to make them last into the future. She brings up ideas of resilience in cities, working with a circular economy, and managing resources more sustainably and effectively.
Enric Battle, architect and partner at Battle i Roig discusses the integration of biodiversity and infrastructure in urban spaces by looking to biodiversity, connectivity, and productivity to shape urban green spaces.
