Henry Foy, Central Europe Correspondent for the Financial Times, based in Warsaw and Mareike Geiling&Jonas Kakoschke, Co-initiators of the organization Refugees Welcomes, are the new guests of reSITE Exclusive Interview Series this week. reSITE released 'Small Talks' series earlier this month and started with Michael Kimmelman and Martin Barry interviews. This exclusive small talk series feature global thought leaders and architects on architecture, culture and cities. 

reSITE hosted a prestigious event in June with the theme of 'Cities in Migration' and hosted dozens of experts and keynote speakers through its diverse conference program as well as a variety of side events for the general public – salon discussions, workshops, a bike ride, and a party. All took place alongside a 2-day international conference. World Architecture Community was Media Partner for the event and tested the pulse of the reSITE throughout the event as LIVE, which was featured on World Architecture Community's Urban Development page.

reSITE, in collaboration with Canal 180, introduces very short interviews packed with inspiration and good vibe and reSITE shares global experts’ network knowledge, ideas and stories with all city lovers and city makers.

Foy is the Central Europe Correspondent for the Financial Times, based in Warsaw. He covers Poland, Slovakia, Czech Republic and the wider CEE region for the world's most trusted financial newspaper.
