Gallery: INTERVIEW: MVRDV’s Anton Wubben on the Design of the Massive T...

 

INHABITAT: How did you get your start with MVRDV?

Anton: After my architecture studies in Delft, I worked for one year as a freelance researcher at the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency. During this more analytic period of work I decided to finally move to the field of architecture. MVRDV was on the top of my list of offices to work at, and one interview and five days later I was working on my first deadline. At that time, the market hall was in the competition phase. I got interested in the project and joined the team in the next phase. During the process my role changed to project leader.

INHABITAT: Your office is based in Rotterdam -- a city that is considered to be a hot-bed for modern design and architecture -- do you feel that you have more freedom to pursue unconventional designs as a result?
