Nathalie de Vries to lecture on the importance of multiplicity in architectural design


MVRDV co-founder, principal architect and urban planner Nathalie de Vries is giving a lecture titled "The importance of multiplicity in architectural design" at the Open Eyes Economy Summit 5 in Krakow, Poland.  

Climate change and a growing world population are also important considerations for the way in which we should design and build. Through examples from MVRDV’s international work, a new concept in architectural design called multiplicity will be explained, which can lead to a more productive, transformative, and resilient built environment. The examples include learning from regeneration projects and the impact of multiplicity on different design aspects and projects by MVRDV in Poland.
