AZURE Talks: Winy Maas of MVRDV on What’s Next

Join AZURE on Saturday, June 23 at 2:00pm for the latest installment in the AZURE Talks series: a not-to-be-missed lecture by internationally renowned Dutch architect, landscape architect, professor and urbanist Winy Maas.
Maas established his Rotterdam firm, MVRDV, in 1993 with Jacob van Rijs and Nathalie de Vries. In the past 25 years, the firm has innovated at every level, from experimental concepts such as Pig City to city-changing installations like Rotterdam’s Stairs to Kriterion and such transformative urban developments as Amsterdam’s Silodam. The firm is celebrated for brilliantly reimagining existing typologies – from shipping containers to barns – and inventing new ones entirely, as it did with the much-adored Markthal Rotterdam. Maas’s lecture will focus on his vision of what’s next in architecture and urbanism.
This talk qualifies for one ConEd structured learning hour (a certificate will be emailed, post-event, by request).
