MVRDV founder Winy Maas has taken the helm at Domus in 2019. The Dutch architect is the second guest editor in the 10x10x10 series, which sees 10 architects each take on the direction of 10 issues of the magazine for the 10 years leading up to Domus’ 100th anniversary in 2028.Winy Maas will edit 10 editions of Domus over the course of 2019, under the theme of the future city. This will see both the magazine and website take a focus on the future of urbanism for the year.
ARCHITECTEM Milan contributor, Ayesha Sabri, held a conversation with Maas on taking up this new role. Maas is behind some of the most innovative urbanism of the 21st century, which he produces through the Rotterdam-based practice MVRDV he founded with Jacob van Rijs and Nathalie de Vries in 1993, and The Why Factory research unit he runs at Delft University of Technology.

Mapping Production is a week long Program being held from 10th – 18th June 2017 at Alserkal Avenue. ARCHITECTEM is invested in delivering academically driven Programs to the architecture and design community with the aim of enriching the Architectural fabric of Dubai.
Drawing inspiration from Al Quoz, the Mapping Production Program is composed of two parts:
a.Dialogues Series, and

Mapping Production will be a ground for research, learning, networking and mentoring between academics and students from different architecture programs, and professionally practicing architects in the UAE. We are especially interested in the observations and dialogue that will arise within and from the workshop.
