The master students from i.e. Iran, India, Japan, China, Turkey and Egypt are developing a regional plan under the guidance of Nicole Maurer. The goal of the project is to propose spatial visions and scenario’s for a circular economy and cross-border mobility in the region of Zuid-Limburg and its neighboring areas.
Today, Marc Maurer gave a lecture for architecture students of the University of Liège. The students took part in an excursion in Southern Dutch Limburg and were welcomed at the Maastricht Institute of Arts. The beautiful auditorium, designed by Wiel Arets, provided the backdrop for the presentation of Maurer United.
From June 3rd to 28th, 2023, the Dutch Consulate General in Hong Kong will present (among other pioneering circular projects) the ‘Superlocal Pavilion’ in the local ‘Central Market Building’. The exhibition shows proven best circular practices in areas of built environment, fashion, and everyday goods.
To give Amsterdam Nieuw-West an urban boost, there is the municipal desire for a new iconic building, in or on the Sloterplas. But could that icon also be a skate park? Maurer United thus explored an alternative option for a New West icon; A floating skatepark that refers to the origin of skateboarding.
From May 7th to July 9th, the Van Eesteren Museum presents ‘Skateboard City’, a large-scale exhibition on skateboard culture in relation to the city. Various design projects related to skateboarding and city playgrounds will be highlighted, with work by Maurer United, SCALA+MANA, Bureau B+B and others.
