Nathalie de Vries, Prof. TU Delft, principal architect and founding partner of MVRDV, has been appointed as professor in the Faculty of Architecture at Delft University of Technology, to work in the field of Architectural Design - Public Building. On the occasion of her taking up her duties she will give an inaugural address on Friday, 22 November at 3PM, with the title: Public Buildings and Multiplicity in Architecture.
Nathalie says: "The majority of buildings should have more productive and transformative qualities. To avoid the creation of architecture that can only be used for a short period of time, attention also needs to focus on a buildings’ intrinsic qualities and the ability they have to create value and contribute to our quality of life. The integration in design of these qualities are a new approach towards buildings and building elements that I would like to call Multiplicity in Architecture." In her inaugural lecture she will explain how "research of as well as by design can inform how design solutions for Public Building can incorporate multiplicity as a critical property".
