Winy Maas delivered the Loebl Lecture Cloud Talk, (WE)GOCITY - Tailor Made Housing on Mon., Feb. 22 at 5 p.m in Lower Core.

WINY MAAS, co-founder of MVRDV, Rotterdam, is currently leading a Cloud Studio from TU Delft in partnership with John Manaves in Chicago.

The Why Factory studio will focus on the Netherlands' tradition of collective housing. The studio will expand on this and develop the next step in general housing. (W)eGo City investigates and push forward the limits of design freedom by making for each user its dream house under dense circumstances that share a collective infrastructure. There are so many housing possibilities in terms of outer envelope, but the current production of towers and slabs reduces the variety into extrusions of the same floor plans. How to improve this?
