Winy Maas Book

Farmax by Winy Maas
Farmax proposes compressing a population vertically and horizontally so as to give that population more space. The book argues for a less uniform distribution of density, more mixed-use ‘vertically-stacked’ developments suitable for the Netherlands which apparently has the highest population density in the world.

A principal of the Rotterdam firm MVRDV, Winy Maas is trained as a landscape architect, architect, and planner. The firm’s architecture has been shaped by their ongoing exploration of density and the informational processes involved in design. Their work includes urban design, civic projects and housing projects in Amsterdam, The Hague, Vienna, and Madrid.

The Dutch architect and city planner was one of the founders of the Rotterdam architectural consortium MVRDV in 1990.

Among his built works are the Dutch Pavilion for Expo 2000 in Hannover, Germany, the innovative business park Flight Forum in Eindhoven, two buildings on Borneo Sporenburg in Amsterdam, and the futuristic installation Metacity Datatown. Winy Maas is currently planning a university department building in Nijmegen, designing large buildings in Amsterdam and The Hague, handling the urban planning for a district of Almere, and preparing several publications about datascapes and manmade natural environments.

Outside the Netherlands, MVRDV is engaged in the construction of pavilions in Japan and Sweden, 100 residential units in Vienna, a large office building in Munich, and Mobility Park outside Hamburg.

Winy Maas was a finalist for the Mies van der Rohe Award for European Architecture in 2003 and won the Amsterdam Art Prize in 2004 with his project Hagen Island in The Hague
