Design and the City

Design and the City

By reSITE
"Design and the City" is published by reSITE, a global nonprofit acting to improve the urban environment, about the ways we can use design to make cities more livable and lovable.

Cities are the sum of designers, developers, artists, citizens, public officials, entrepreneurs, and the displaced, but rarely do each of these constituencies gather in the same room, let alone speak the same language, and cities suffer for it. reSITE is literally that room. In order to create a city that is truly for everyone, we need to have conversations on how to design and build cities with humans in mind.

What is Design with Ravi Naidoo
Exuberant. Optimistic. Romantic. Three words Ravi Naidoo, the advocate who put African design on the map, used to describe himself. Ravi's story is one of reinvention. Just as South Africa was entering a period of newly found democracy, Ravi found an impetus to change his career. Over 20 years later, he is the driving force behind Design Indaba, arguably the most influential design event in the world. The event takes place in Cape Town every year, and it's only the tip of the iceberg. They consider themselves a do-tank, rather than a think-tank, pushing the boundaries of design with the simple question—what is design for?

Human-Centered Smart Cities with Marianthi Tatari
As a true systems thinker, Marianthi Tatari, Associate Director and Senior Architect at UNStudio, takes a scalar approach to design, addressing issues of experience and sense of place in various scales and typologies. During our discussion, we dissect different aspects of city-making that threaten the quality of life such as monofunctional spaces and commoditized smart cities and how to approach designing them with optimism.  Design and the City, is a podcast produced by reSITE about the ways we can use design to make cities more livable and lovable. reSITE is a global non-profit acting to improve the urban environment, both on the stage at our events, and off.

Creating Emotional Connections to Nature with Yosuke Hayano
"How do you bring modern architecture into the future and connect humans with nature?” That is the question Yosuke Hayano, principal partner for MAD Architects brings to the table when the studio approaches any of their projects. They are creating a vision for the future city. As they’ve put it, they have been “committed to developing futuristic, organic, technologically advanced designs that embody a contemporary interpretation of the Eastern affinity for nature”. During our interview with Yosuke, we examined how they are able to create that vision as a journey for people to meet nature through architecture.

A New Generation of Architects with Chris Precht
When it comes to urban regeneration, not many are thinking about it the way Chris Precht is. Studio Precht’s modular buildings with interwoven, natural geometry bring “being green” to a whole other level. They are all variations on a theme - vertical farming meant for city-living - and aim to reconnect our lives to our food production by bringing it back into our cities, and our minds through architecture. Hear from Chris as he discusses the importance of authenticity, creating spaces that activate our senses, and connecting ourselves to our objective reality to solve the problems of our time.

Designing on a Human Scale with Thomas Heatherwick
For Thomas Heatherwick, architecture and urban design go hand-in-hand. Like with all of his projects, he strives to consider them from a human scale capturing the essence of what already exists. His holistic approach brings a thoughtful dimension to architecture, design and urban spaces. Joining the interview is ArchDaily editor, Christele Harrouk, to explore deeper into how Heatherwick approaches his projects with an inspiring amount of integrity and humility.  Design and the City, is a podcast produced by reSITE about the ways we can use design to make cities more livable and lovable. reSITE is a global non-profit acting to improve the urban environment, both on the stage at our events, and off.

Design and the City Trailer
Design and the City is a podcast about the ways we can use design to make cities more livable and lovable. reSITE is excited to announce the launch of its first-ever official podcast, Design and the City. We interviewed nine of our most prolific and promising speakers from reSITE 2019 REGENERATE for a more intimate, in-depth dig into their current projects and outlooks on the future of our cities. Hear from Thomas Heatherwick (Heatherwick Studios), Chris Precht (Studio Precht), Leona Lynen (Haus der Statistik) and Ravi Naidoo (Design Indaba) among others. Cities are the sum of designers, developers, artists, citizens, public officials, entrepreneurs, and the displaced, but rarely do each of these constituencies gather in the same room, let alone speak the same language, and cities suffer for it. reSITE is literally that room. In order to create a city that is truly for everyone, we need to work together. We need to have conversations, debates, discussions, and we need to create a little bit of that friction where the magic happens. We use our flagship event to do just that and frame the future of cities through as many different perspectives as we can. This year we aim to create conversations around how cities can regenerate themselves from every angle. reSITE is a global non-profit acting to improve the urban environment, both on the stage at our events, and off.
