Principle architect, urban planner and landscape designer
Winy Maas (Schijndel, the Netherlands, 1959) is a co-founder and principal architect of MVRDV, an interdisciplinary studio that works at the intersection of architecture and urbanism. The award-winning Dutch practice was set up by Winy alongside Jacob van Rijs and Nathalie de Vries in 1993 and has established an international identity with a wide variety of buildings, cities and landscapes that are innovative, experimental, and theoretical.
Winy has received international acclaim for his range of urban planning and building projects, across all typologies and scales, that are self-generated, innovative, experimental, and theoretical. You’ll meet Winy on 21 October during the opening of CWF2019!
“I advocate denser, greener, more attractive and liveable cities, with an approach to design that centres around user-defined, innovative, and sustainable ideas for the built environment, regardless of typology or scale,” he says.
