Founding Partner, MVRDV
Winy Maas is the 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 Maas 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. Maas 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. Besides his work for MVRDV, Maas is Professor of Urbanism and Architecture at the Delft University of Technology.
