MVRDV and Austin-Smith:Lord, supported by a multidisciplinary team, have recently been commissioned by Glasgow City Council to develop with stakeholders and local communities, Regeneration Frameworks for four districts within the City Centre. Entitled (Y)our City Centre this project is progressing throughout 2017.

In this lecture, organised and introduced by Austin-Smith:Lord, Winy Maas outlines MVRDV’s design philosophy. He outlines how to create an intimate city, how to build a boutique made of glass bricks, how to stack Dutch landscapes and how to advance research in nano-technology that might one day replace concrete as a construction material. In conclusion, parallels are drawn with Glasgow and the (Y)our City Centre project.
