Winy Maas to talk about (W)ego at Bartlett School of Architecture in London, 1 November 2017

On the 1st of November, Winy Maas will be giving lecture at the Bartlett School of Architecture in London. Bartlett organizes an international lecture series that runs throughout the complete study year. Winy will be talking about the research project (W)ego by The Why factory and MVRDV. 

The future city is flexible. Have you ever dreamed of sleeping suspended high in the air? How would it feel to sleep inside a vertical hanging garden? What if your room was made of stairs? Would you dare to sleep in a room that was a billboard? Or inside a shimmering grotto? What is your dream room? “Based on the hypothesis that the maximum density could be equal to the maximum of desires, this research conducted by the Why Factory explores the potentials of negotiation in dense context,” says Winy Maas. “Through gaming and other tools, Wego explores participatory design processes to model the competing desires and egos of each resident in the fairest possible way.”
