(London, October 7th, 2010) The Royal Institute of British Architects’ (RIBA) Council today approved eight new International Fellowships of the RIBA, among them Winy Maas, Jacob van Rijs and Nathalie De Vries, the three founders and principal architects of MVRDV. RIBA International Fellowships reward the particular contributions non-UK architects have made to architecture. The lifetime honour, conferred annually, allows individual recipients to use the initials Int FRIBA after their name.

RIBA President Ruth Reed said: ‘The RIBA is delighted to honour these individuals who have each made a significant contribution to the world of architecture.” Winy Maas, Jacob van Rijs and Nathalie de Vries are honored about receiving the award at the moment that the first building of MVRDV in the United Kingdom is completed, the Balancing Barn in Suffolk.

The 2011 RIBA International Fellowships will be presented at a ceremony at the RIBA in London on 10 February 2011. The other new fellows are Abdel Wahed El-Wakil, Kjetil T Thorsen and Craig Dykers of Snøhetta, Ma Yansong of Mad Architects and Edouard François. The RIBA’s eight new International Fellows join an impressive and growing list of around 70 non-UK architects. Among them Toyo Ito, Herzog&deMeuron, Frank Gehry and Oscar Niemeyer. The other international fellows from the Netherlands are so far Herman Herztberger, Francine Houben of Mecanoo and Rem Koolhaas of OMA.

This year’s RIBA Honours Committee was chaired by RIBA President, Ruth Reed with architects Edward Cullinan, Eva Jiricna and Chris Wilkinson, engineer Max Fordham and client Laura Lee.
MVRDV was set up in Rotterdam (the Netherlands) in 1993 by Winy Maas, Jacob van Rijs and Nathalie de Vries. MVRDV engages globally in providing solutions to contemporary architectural and urban issues. A research based and highly collaborative design method engages experts from all fields, clients and stakeholders in the creative process. The results are exemplary and outspoken buildings, urban plans, studies and objects, which enable our cities and landscapes to develop towards a better future.

Early projects such as the headquarters for the Dutch Public Broadcaster VPRO and housing for elderly WoZoCo in Amsterdam lead to international acclaim.

MVRDV develops its work in a conceptual way, the changing condition is visualised and discussed through designs, sometimes literally through the design and construction of a diagram. The office continues to pursue its fascination and methodical research on density using a method of shaping space through complex amounts of data that accompany contemporary building and design processes.
MVRDV first published a cross section of these study results in FARMAX (1998), followed by a.o. MetaCity/Datatown (1999), Costa Iberica (2000), Regionmaker (2002), 5 Minutes City (2003), KM3 (2005), and more recently Spacefighter (2007) and Skycar City (2007). MVRDV deals with global ecological issues in large scale studies such as Pig City as well as in small pragmatic solutions for devastated areas of New Orleans.
Current projects include various housing projects in the Netherlands, Spain, China, France, the United Kingdom, USA, India, Korea and other countries, a bank headquarter in Oslo, Norway, a public library for Spijkenisse , Netherlands, a central market hall for Rotterdam, a culture plaza in Nanjing, China, large scale urban plans include a plan for an eco-city in Logroño, Spain, an urban vision for the doubling in size of Almere, Netherlands and Grand Paris, the vision of a post-Kyoto Greater Paris region.
The work of MVRDV is exhibited and published worldwide and receives international awards. The 60 architects, designers and staff members conceive projects in a multi-disciplinary collaborative design process and apply highest technological and sustainable standards.
Together with Delft University of Technology MVRDV runs The Why Factory, an independent think tank and research institute providing argument for architecture and urbanism by envisioning the city of the future.
