Gideon Maasland to discuss cities of the future at the IBA 12th Annual Real Estate Investments Conference


Major cities around the world are expected to grow significantly in coming years. This development calls for a new type of urban planning with an upwards focus. Join Gideon Maasland on June 16 at the IBA 12th Annual Real Estate Investments Conference, as he discusses buildings with forest roofs and connecting bridges, shared facilities, and green vertical neighbourhoods.

Director and Architect Gideon Maasland leads MVRDV’s Studio 8, which is responsible for large-scale, complex buildings. With extensive experience acquired over a 15-year career at several high profile Dutch offices, Maasland leads all projects in his studio under development and construction, including Valley, Tripolis Park, and the transformation of Jaarbeurs in Utrecht, as well as various projects in Eindhoven, Poland, and the UK. Renowned for his detailed and dedicated approach, Maasland’s work is hands-on. To ensure the highest quality, he is often on the construction site directly overseeing building processes. Maasland is passionate about working on buildings that make a difference to the people using or living close to them. He strongly believes that the key elements of a successful project are a great team of experts, good clients, full integration of scripting techniques, and a strong dedication to relationship management.  

The IBA is the foremost organisation for international legal practitioners, bar associations and law societies. Established in 1947, shortly after the creation of the United Nations, the IBA was born out of the conviction that an organisation made up of the world's bar associations could contribute to global stability and peace through the administration of justice. In the 75 years since its creation, the organisation has evolved into an organization that incorporates individual international lawyers and entire law firms. The present membership is comprised of more than 80,000 individual international lawyers from most of the world’s leading law firms and some 190 bar associations and law societies spanning more than 170 countries. The IBA has considerable expertise in assisting the global legal community, and through its global membership it influences the development of international law reform and shapes the future of the legal profession throughout the world.
