Visionary cities by Winy Maas( Book )
10 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Visionary cities" sets the agenda for the city of the future. This first publication in the "Future Cities Series" is intended as an overview of the issues that The Why Factory is addressing and to outline this research institute's ambitions and modus operandi for the coming years. In each of the book's chapters, whether about sustainability, the boom in the leisure industry or poverty, one encounters the tension between the disciplines of architecture and urbanism and the dynamics of the city itself. Each chapter is therefore a specific brief, an urgent call for visionary scenarios for the city of the future. In the concluding chapter Winy Maas advocates regarding the city first and foremost as a project for the future. Maas takes a critical standpoint vis-à-vis current urban planning practice. He argues that architecture possesses a visionary dimension that can generate new value of the city and advocates a large-scale communal agenda
Space fighter : the evolutionary city (game:) by MVRDV (Firm)( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How do concentrations and settlements 'move'? How do they mutate and/or adapt to this continuous change? What is the struggle, the driving force, behind this? Maybe a process-oriented, 'Darwinist' or evolutionary attitude can be followed towards change and creation, one that models these 'battles', these acts of ascending survival mechanisms. SpaceFighter (the game) wants to model these interactive urban developments. It wants to reflect and compare (in one second or one minute) imaginable interactive urban processes. SpaceFighter has been constructed by Winy Maas in collaboration with the Delft School of Design and the Berlage Institute in Rotterdam
Hong Kong fantasies : challenging world-class city standards by Winy Maas( Book )
7 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The 'Why factory' throws down the gauntlet to the city of Hong Kong. What role will Hong Kong be fulfilling in the future? Which specialism should the city focus on in the trial of strength with other cities, such as Shenzhen, Shanghai and Singapore? What objectives need to be set? What are the ingredients that would be appropriate? Can Hong Kong deploy its relatively high quality to develop itself further? And if so, then how? "Hong Kong fantasies" plots out alternative paths, new visions and strategies for Hong Kong's urban and architectonic future. Sustainability and globalization play a leading role in specific spatial interventions that underpin progressive developements in the future

City shock : [planning the unexpected] by The Why Factory( Book )
5 editions published in 2012 in English and Dutch and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In a world where forecasting seems futile, where predictions are unreliable, and where even the most absurd scenarios are plausible, many urban planning decisions seem to be governed not by vision - but by fear. Fear of disaster, fear of change, fear of the unknown. Can we learn from 'fear'? Can we even use it as a guide for spatial planning? 'City Shock' explores ten innocent 'what ifs'. What kinds of radical trend breaks can we expect, and with what effects? Guided by fantasy rather than science, this book imagines how each of these scenarios could play out in the Dutch landscape between 2018 and 2047. In a narrative composed of (im)possible headlines, a chain of fictitious newspaper spreads reports these events, exposes their possible causes and depicts their potential consequences for Dutch spatial planning and lifestyle

The Glass Farm : biography of a building by Gerard Buenen( Book )
3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Dutch and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Glass Farm makes for an arresting sight on the market square in the Dutch town of Schijndel. Just as fascinating is the history of how the building came into being. This book tells the story of Winy Maas, who at age 18 asked the mayor to do something with the empty space that had been left in Schijndel's market square since Operation Market Garden bombing in 1944. It took 33 years for the building to be erected. The chronicle of the Glass Farm is a history that reads like a novel

RheinRuhrCity : die Unentdeckte Metropole = the hidden metropolis : the regionmaker by MVRDV (Firm)( Book )
2 editions published in 2002 in German and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"[This book] accompanies the exhibition with the same name in the NRW-Forum Kultur und Wirtschaft in Düsseldorf 2002/2003. The exhibition as well as this book want to generate a discussion on the possible future of the Rhine-Ruhr region in Germany, at a moment that large-scale items again become part of the architectural domain. The REGIONMAKER has been developed as an innovative planning device and has been applied to the agglomeration at Rhine and Ruhr. This most radical and far-sighted analysis of RheinRuhrCity as well as the development of the REGIONMAKER have been made possible through a collaboration between the dutch planning office MVRDV, various academic institutions and highly recommended international professionals. This book can be seen as a 'manual' for the REGIONMAKER and describes the targets and the structure of the software"--Back cover
