Nathalie de Vries to discuss her role as a city architect and urbanism in cities


How can we upgrade city districts, in a way that allows us to progress from defined rules to suggestive directions? Join Nathalie de Vries on September 20 at Realty Belgium, as she discusses her role as a city architect and the impact architects have on long-term urban living.

Founding partner Nathalie de Vries has led many successful MVRDV projects, with a focus on the invention of new building typologies and the creation of changeable, open systems. De Vries combines her work for MVRDV with a position as professor of Architectural Design and Public Building at the Faculty of Architecture at TU Delft. The central theme in her research, design, and construction of public buildings and public space is “Multiplicity in Design”. In 2021, the municipality of Groningen appointed De Vries to the position of City Architect. In this role, De Vries advises on current urban design and architectural projects and brings spatial issues to the fore in order to improve the city’s physical living environment and building culture.
