Architecture, the pandemic and the future of design: Nathalie de Vries - MVRDV
1. How did your firm handle the lockdown?
2. What new forms of work are you experimenting with and how about the results?
3. How do you think this experience will affect the future management of an architectural practice?
The questions regarding the COVID-19 situation are answered by architect Nathalie de Vries, principal architect and founding partner of MVRDV with Winy Maas and Jacob van Rijs.
Nathalie de Vries explains how an emergency that needs to be tackled quickly can become a catalyst for virtuous change. From reducing travel to smart working, to teaching as a professor at the Faculty of Architecture at the Delft University of Technology, in the field of Architectural Design - Public Building, the effects of the pandemic are many but not only negative.
