reSITE dPAV was a three-stage competition. Stage one commenced with an "Open Call" where 20 individuals from across the globe were selected for stage two: a 2.5 day workshop competition in Prague. One team was selected by a jury (see Jury) for stage three: the construction of a temporary, movable pavilion that will be used for conferences and festivals about urbanism in Central and Eastern Europe. Tyson Hosmer of Balmond Studio led the workshop with a special Keynote Lecture by world-renowned structural designer and artist Cecil Balmond. The workshop took place during reSITE festival from 21 - 23 June 2013. The most successful proposal will be chosen by an international jury. The pavilion chosen represents a physical manifestation of what reSITE stands for including the virtues of collaboration, transparency, sustainability, innovation, openness, and international discourse on art, urbanism, activism and design. It will become an internationally recognized device for reSITE festival and the modernization of cities in Central and Eastern Europe.
The reSITE dPAV competition and workshop was open and interdisciplinary – individuals and teams in architecture, landscape architecture, engineering, sociology, geography, social science, marketing, finance, science, business, technology and IT, event planning and anyone interested in cities, architecture and urban design.
