MVRDV founders Winy Maas, Jacob van Rijs and Nathalie de Vries are proud to announce the opening of a new office in Spaces Réaumur, Paris. In recent years, MVRDV has become increasingly active in France with prestigious projects in Rennes, Bordeaux and Paris.
France has become an important country for MVRDV. In fifteen years, the Rotterdam practice realised various projects in France. For example, Pushed Slab (2014), a large office complex in Paris and the transformation of the Teletech Campus (2012) in Dijon. In 2009 MVRDV, in collaboration with ACS Architects, Palo Alto, and AAF Architects and Urbanists, Paris, the firm took on the challenge of the then-president Nicolas Sarkozy to devise a master plan for Paris and its suburbs. This resulted in Grand Paris, an urban vision for 2030.
“We have already worked for a long time and intensely in France. We want to deepen that love with our presence,” says Winy Maas, co-founder, MVRDV.
