The Street is mmcité's annual conference celebrating landscape architecture, urban design, and city planning.

Every year, we take clients on a tour of our birthplace in the Czech Republic.
It is a week filled with educational experiences, exchanges of ideas, and good food and drink!

This year, we are taking the concept one step further by making a "field trip" out of it! Surely you remember your schooldays, where field trips were highly anticipated events that bonded you with your classmates. You'd all pile onto a bus and play games on the way to your destination. "Getting there" was part of the fun.

Let us take you on our version of this classic event - an upgrade from the days of the big yellow school bus, this is the field trip re-defined. A tour throughout some of the most beautiful and unique cities in Europe, known for their architecture and design. An opportunity to discuss ideas amongst peers and share a laugh over dinner.

Come experience the magic of the Field Trip with us.
