MVRDV - Architecture Speaks: The Language of MVRDV

Architecture Speaks: The Language of MVRDV

Through an installation of four towers filling the space of the multi-storey former brewery building, Architecture Speaks: The Language of MVRDV focuses on four design methodologies that arise repeatedly in MVRDV’s projects, each described by a single word selected from the firm’s characteristic vocabulary: ‘stack’, ‘pixel’, ‘village’, and ‘activator’.

Through an installation of four towers filling the space of the multi-storey former brewery building, Architecture Speaks: The Language of MVRDV focuses on four design methodologies that arise repeatedly in MVRDV’s projects, each described by a single word selected from the firm’s characteristic vocabulary: ‘stack’, ‘pixel’, ‘village’, and ‘activator’. The towers form the framework for the exhibition, displaying exemplary projects from the firm’s past, present, and future, while each acting as a distillation of one of the four words that are key to understanding MVRDV’s approach and worldview. The exhibition is accompanied by a manifesto analysing the firm’s use of language and elaborating on the social and environmental dimensions of each concept that are fundamental to MVRDV’s mission.
