AD Interviews: Cecil Balmond at reSITE Conference

AD Interviews: Cecil Balmond at reSITE Conference

A few weeks ago, investors, business leaders, real estate developers, politicians, architects, urban planners, landscape architects, experts in transportation, innovation, engineers, economists, financiers, community organizers, scientists, artists, students and those with an active interest in urban development gathered in Prague to attend the reSITE Conference. As part of the conference, Cecil Balmond-- formerly of Arup Engineers and currently leading Balmond Studio in London -- led a two-stage international design competition workshop to imagine the future mobile event pavilion. (Stay tuned, we'll be posting these results soon!)

Our media partner sat down with Balmond and asked him a few questions relating to the design competition workshop. In the interview, Balmond speaks about his work with pavilions and their importance as catalysts not only for architecture, but also for the city at large. With the opportunity to experiement with materials and systems of assembly, pavilions have informed his work on larger structures. Hear what Balmond is focusing on in his research-based practice and find out more about his collaborative projects in the video.
