MVRDV co-founder and principal architect Winy Maas speaks on March 29 at the University of Hong Kong.
For the Towers: Freespace + Hong Kong Forum Winy Maas explores with his lecture Choose Your Tower. Housing Beyond Uniformity the specific aspects of tower designs to consider the phenomenon of high-rise architecture as an invitation to designers, planners and politicians to envision and realize a more varied Hong Kong cityscape through a focused investigation of Hong Kong’s housing typologies and towers. Upon reviewing previous generations of Hong Kong housing development and analysing the forces that shaped them, he gives an overview on new means with which to strive for a more harmonious balance between population density and quality of life, exploring these new angles to arrive at alternative design schemes.
