WINY MAAS – “WHAT’S NEXT?”
Winy Maas, architect and urban planner is one the founding principals of MVRDV, an interdisciplinary studio that works at the intersection of architecture and urbanism. Jacob van Rijs and Nathalie de Vries, the award-winning Dutch practice was set up over two decades ago and has established an international identity with a wide-variety of building typologies and scales that are self-generated, innovative, experimental and theoretical.
Winy advocates denser, greener, more attractive and liveable cities, with an approach to design, regardless of typology or scale reflecting a user-defined, innovative and sustainable consideration for the built environment.
In 2008, Winy founded The Why Factory at TU Delft, a research institute on future cities which he leads as director. He has been a Visiting Professor at GSAPP Columbia and IIT Chicago and has also held teaching positions at the ETH Zurich, the University of Louvain, the University of Hong Kong, Berlage Institute, the Architectural Association (AA) in London, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Yale University (Eero Saarinen Chair), Ohio State University and the Rotterdam Building Academy.
RMIT Master of Architecture students will be joining TU Delft students this semester at The Why Factory as part of the Design Studio “Planet Maker: Coding our Future on Earth” which is a collaboration between The Why Factory @ TU Delft and RMIT Architecture.
