URBANISM AND THE DAILY LIFE
As a part of Strelka education program “Urban Routines” (2013-2014), Dutch architect Winy Maas talks about how architects and urbanists can format and influence the daily life of the citizens in the contemporary urban environment. Showing very recent projects – from large scale planning schemes to experimental student research, Winy Maas explains his understanding of the complex relationship between grand design ideas and the seemingly familiar, yet not fully explored world of the quotidian.


Winy Maas is a Dutch architect, urbanist, and a co-founder of the MVRDV studio,among whose projects are the South Korean Kwang center, the House of Culture and Movementin Denmark, and a project for an autonomous residential community in Moscow’s A101 suburbs. Winy Maas is actively teaching in different educational institutions around the world, such as University of Hong Kong, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Delft Technical University, the Berlage Institute, and Yale University.
