MVRDV Files 4: Projects 435-908 (a+u 597)
Architecture and Urbanism, 2020
Following the magazine’s three previous features on Dutch architects MVDRV over the past two decades, this fourth special issue focuses on the office’s ambitions to conceptualise sustainable “future-proof” buildings and cities. An essay by the principals appears alongside a roundtable discussion with its new partners, as well as 23 projects that demonstrate their visionary ideas about redefining the spaces we use every day. Among the featured built and unbuilt works are KoolKiel in Germany, Tirana Pyramid, Tianjin Binhai Library, Roskilde Festival Folk High School, Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, the new neighbourhood of Ilot Queryries in Bordeaux, and more.
