reSITE 2017 focused on how the invisible shapes the visible in a city. The focus was on where design meets infrastructure and the presence of these vital systems in the architecture and landscape of cities. The conference explored factors that make a city functional, that drive the economy and consume a consequent part of municipal budgets - despite being invisible like technical infrastructure such. The speakers presented and debated the urban landscapes, buildings, networks, and social participation processes that help define urban design of the future.
