MVRDV appoint five new partners as part of reshuffle

The founders of Dutch architecture studio MVRDV have today (12 April) added five new partners as part of a management reshuffle intended to nurture the practice’s “intellectual and creative continuity, organisational growth and stability.”

Frans de Witte, Fokke Moerel, Jeroen Zuidgeest, Wenchian Shi and Jan Knikker join founding trio Winy Maas, Nathalie de Vries and Jacob van Rijs as partners.

As part of the reshuffle, the studio – which has offices in Rotterdam, Paris and Shanghai – will be subdivided into eight departments covering marketing, finance, urbanism and five geographic areas – with van Rijs taking on the role of managing director.

Architects Stefan de Koning, Bertrand Schippan and Olaf van den Broek have been promoted as new department heads.

In a statement, the firm said: “The company used the years of the recent economic crisis to professionalise, introduce BIM, BREEAM and LEED and build up a visualisation department. Opening Markthal Rotterdam, was an accelerator for the practice and helped it grow from 65 staff members to the current 140. “

Van Rijs added: “We are in exciting times of expansion, both in office size and in entering new countries, but we have prepared for this moment over the last five years, professionalising and aligning the organisation according to our set goals.

“Now is a good moment to announce the results of this organisational update that creates a solid basis for a financially stable future. MVRDV is now larger, more professional and more active than ever before.”

The studio, who will be profiled in the next issue of CLADmag, have a host of exciting leisure projects in the pipeline, including a giant public staircase in Rotterdam, a rock and roll facility in the Danish city Roskilde and a skygarden in Seoul.
