One of the most important parts of the second annual reSITE festival, which is aimed to change the city to a place suitable for life, was an international multidisciplinary workshop with students from all over the world.

The workshop, co-organized by a ARCHIP – Architectural Institute in , was held from June 21st to 23rd. It was tutored by renowned expert from Balmond Studio. The workshop participants were selected by an international jury from a number of people from various fields – architects, designers, cultural managers, programmers, designers and representatives of other specializations, to create multidisciplinary teams. These teams of researches colaborated for three days on a design concept of the future mobile pavilion, which will become a distinguishing feature of the festival in the upcoming years.
