On January 25, MVRDV co-founder Nathalie de Vries will give a lecture to the students of the University of Texas at Austin. The subject of her presentation will be ‘Multiplicity in design as an attitude: Finding in the practice of everyday ways to work towards a more productive, transformative and resilient built environment’.
"The majority of buildings should have more productive and transformative qualities. To avoid the creation of architecture that can only be used for a short period of time, attention also needs to focus on a buildings’ intrinsic qualities and the ability they have to create value and contribute to our quality of life." – Nathalie de Vries
The University of Texas at Austin, founded in 1883, ranks among the 40 best universities in the world. It supports more than 50,000 diverse students with top national programs across 18 colleges and schools. It is Texas’ leading research university.
