MVRDV Buildings: Updated Edition
Since they amazed the world with their design of the Dutch pavilion at the 2000 World Expo, MVRDV has been regarded as one of the world's top architecture bureaus. The architects of MVRDV are famous for their visionary research and thought-provoking projects such as Pig City and Grand Paris. In 20 years of practice the office has also realized a stunning portfolio of buildings and urban plans, including villa VPRO, WoZoCo, Balancing Barn, Mirador Madrid and Markthal Rotterdam. How do these buildings perform? What are the philosophy, logic, and thinking behind the visually imminent MVRDV concepts? And most important, do these buildings work? What's life like in a blue house, on an orange tribune, in a vertical shopping street, in housing silos and inside a mountain of books?
In cooperation with architecture critics Ilka and Andreas Ruby and graphic designer Joost Grootens, MVRDV assembled a redefined architecture monograph about its realized work, featuring user testimonies, journalistic articles, unpublished images and accessible drawings.
