How do citizen participation processes work in urban development? And what are the new developments in the field of smart cities? Partner Jan Knikker will tell you all about citizen communication/participation in the development of new urban districts, residential areas, smart cities, urban development and mobility at the Hessen Trade & Invest Online Seminar October 7.
Partner and Director of Strategy at MVRDV, Jan Knikker joined MVRDV in 2008, just as the office had begun to face the consequences of the Global Financial Crisis. Prior to this, Knikker shaped OMA’s public image for nearly a decade, after having first began his career as a journalist. As Partner and Director of Strategy at MVRDV, Knikker drives Business Development and Public Relations efforts, spearheading a large and dynamic studio that also includes the office’s visualization capacity. He further leads the office’s branding efforts, and MVRDV’s expansion into new markets, by supporting the office’s ambition to generate solutions to global challenges through a multifaceted approach to architecture and urbanism.
The main topic of this online seminar is urban development in the Netherlands. Hessen Trade & Investment, the organization responsible for this event, believes that they can learn a lot from Dutch urban development and sustainable building.
