In this lecture, Winy Maas discusses the recent works of his architectural firm, MVRDV, and the research project “(W)ego” at The Why Factory, a think tank he founded in collaboration with Delft University of Technology, which explores possibilities for city development by visualising scenarios and producing models of the future city. Among other themes, Maas examines the value of the iconic and the copy-paste generation, as well as urban planning methods and software that enable our cities to stride towards a better future.
