Published by Maas Lawrence

Co-edited by MVRDV founding partner Jacob van Rijs and MVRDV partner Jan Knikker in collaboration with Hans Ibelings and Nanne de Ru, the book presents twenty-five recently completed projects in Europe, North America and Asia. Among them are several that particularly show the potential of reuse and transformation, such as High Profile, a lamp made from leftover metal profiles, or Seoullo 7017, the transformation of an elevated highway in Seoul into an urban park. Many of the projects also have a distinct public dimension, welcoming people in, around, and sometimes also on top of buildings, as in the case of the depot of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, or the Idea Factory in Shenzhen.

With essays by Tim Abrahams, Hans Ibelings, and Joann Plockova, the richly illustrated book offers the opportunity for readers and browsers to immerse themselves in the ideas and experiments of MVRDV.
