reSITE and the Institut plánování a rozvoje Prahy (Prague Institute for Planning and Development) are excited to host the fifth-annual reSITE 2016: Cities in Migration - at the Forum Karlin in Prague. 5th annual event, 40 top global experts.
“The city is a space where the powerless can make history,” says a globally renowned sociologist and professor at Columbia University, Saskia Sassen. Along with Ursula Struppe, the Director of Vienna Municipal Department for Integration and Diversity, or Mimi Hoang, New York-based architect designing micro-unit housing for young people and small families, she is one of many extraordinary speakers that will come to reSITE 2016: Cities in Migration to speak about how cities can utilize the potential posed by migration for sustainable urban development.
NYC Planning Commissioner, Carl Weisbrod, will talk about NYC’s path toward greener streets and affordable housing. The architecture critic of The New York Times, Michael Kimmelman, will highlight the links between climate change and migration – a hot topic following COP21 in Paris, while Martin Rein-Cano, a designer of the award-winning Superkilen park in Copenhagen is expected to give a keynote address about designing with immigrants’ needs in mind. At the borders migration can be photographed. In cities it can be solved. For the fifth consecutive year, Prague will be hosting the largest concentration of the world’s top architects, urbanists, urban planners, landscape architects and economists.
40 of the world’s top experts from 20 countries will be there along with 800 international delegates. They will explore solutions to make cities better places for the next generation to live, work and play. reSITE 2016: Cities in Migration is open to anyone interested in the future of their city and will involve over 750 local and global thought leaders from the social sciences, architecture, planning, landscape architecture, art and culture, politics, digital technology startups and real estate development.
