MVRDV - Studio director Enno Zuidema to present on Luxembourg in Transition at Geneva Seminar 2021

Studio director Enno Zuidema to present on Luxembourg in Transition at Geneva Seminar 2021


MVRDV was selected as one of the finalists for the Luxembourg in Transition competition. Our proposal ‘’Beyond Lux(e), Towards Ecotopia’’ addresses five key themes and, just as importantly, the links between them: food, energy, water, mobility and waste. The plan aims to address each theme in a nine-step process that starts with identifying targets and ultimately concludes with concrete proposals to tackle each challenge. Studio director Enno Zuidema will speak about this ecological transition of Luxembourg at the Geneva Seminar 2021 on December 15.

Director, and Urban Planner, Enno Zuidema leads MVRDV’s Urban Studio. Specialized in the design and planning of infrastructure, urban transformation, and densification, Zuidema is a champion of participatory design and planning, applying this to the great benefit of the projects that MVRDV’s Urban Studio produces. Renowned Dutch projects Zuidema has been integral to include the redevelopment of the station area of Utrecht, Highway N31 Harlingen, Eemsdelta and a regional strategic plan for Eemsdelta Groningen and several projects on livability and sustainability.
