Live interview with Winy Maas as part of Virtual Design Festival – Dezeen

Dutch architect Winy Maas joined Dezeen in a live Screentime conversation sponsored by Enscape as part of Virtual Design Festival.

The co-founder and principal architect of MVDRV discussed his studio’s work with Dezeen’s founder and editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs.

Maas studied architecture and urban planning at TU Delft before setting up MVRDV in 1993 with Jacob van Rijs and Nathalie de Vries.

Projects completed by the Rotterdam-based firm are characterised by an experimental architectural style and interdisciplinary approach.

The studio recently announced plans to build a series of stacked terraces at the Shimao ShenKong International Centre in Shenzhen, which Maas describes as an “urban living room”.

Previous projects include a mixed-use “vertical village” made up of yellow, blue, red and green towers in New York and a cantilevered, mirror-clad house in Suffolk.

Alongside his work for MVRDV, Maas also holds a teaching position
