METASITU is a strategic art collective and urban consultancy founded by landscape architect Liva Dudareva (Latvia) and urban sociologist Eduardo Cassina (Spain). The duo was formed in early 2014. During this time, the group implemented projects in Palestine, Austria, Serbia, Russia, Greece, the United Arab Emirates. METASITU’s research interest lies in the study of the different fibres that weave it, the social and communal layers, the built matrix and the infinite networks that traverse it. From this departure point, their intention is to dissect the inhabited territory and bring architectural and urban sociological research to a wider audience through art in order to bridge the gap that currently exists separating urbanites from a global understanding of their immediate surroundings. This project, according to the authors, will be able to bridge the gap between the local community and the global world.
