SITESIZE

Collaborative projects platform centred on the contemporary metropolis. Founded in 2002 by Elvira Pujol and Joan Vila-Puig, it develops specific creation and mediation projects in the Barcelona metropolitan area.

Sitesize defines itself as a project initiator in the hybrid field of social analysis and creative processes. Its objective is to generate instruments of critical knowledge based on collective forms of thought and investigation in order to create spaces for dialogue and set in motion collaborative creation/participation processes. Local contexts are the privileged work sites for experiencing territories as new forms of action which, thanks to their creative and purposefullness character, tend to widen their scope.
