Creating a sense of community and belonging through architecture is very important for MVRDV, especially in these times when people often feel isolated from each other. Therefore, many MVRDV projects focus on community buildings. Are you curious to know more about how MVRDV managed to create successful projects like WERK12 and Ku.Be House of Culture and Movement? Then tune in virtually for the keynote presentation of MVRDV associate Kristina Knauf at the Mobility Hubs Conference on April 29 in Hamburg.
“I’m interested in how design can inspire collective processes, and manifest a first vague idea or need into a tangible reality, cherishing uncertainties along the way, but defining a clear future vision at the same time.”
Associate Kristina Knauf shapes MVRDV project processes for the Urban Studio from early acquisition stages to delivery, driving storyline, design, and the internal coordination of project development through different design phases. With a particular dedication to urbanism and resilience, Knauf champions the development of innovative methods, tools, and products that help to future-proof MVRDV’s office vision and the Urban Studio’s design strategies.
“Building Communities – Community building” is a discussion that is part of the Future Urban Modules, organized by IBA Hamburg BmBh along with the city of Hamburg. Beside Kristina Knauf representing MVRDV there will be other experts from various sectors and industries engaging in a professional exchange. A short Q&A session will also follow the keynote presentations.
