“My personal drive is to collaborate on the design and realization of buildings that have a strong connection to and impact on their direct surroundings such as (semi) public buildings, refurbishments of monumental buildings, which can revive their neighborhood and buildings with a clear end-user.”
Join Fokke Moerel at the WRLDCTY event in New York City on October 2 for a discussion on creating adventurous spaces. Fokke will share some examples from MVRDV’s portfolio to portray an image of inclusive design and how we can uncover unconventional opportunities for innovation. The event gathers other urban innovators and entrepreneurs in an attempt to shape the future of cities in an uncertain world. Together they will fill in the gap between urban design, real estate and technology in order to build better cities for tomorrow.
