FARMAX. Excursions on Density examines the possibilities of extremes. It sets out to discover the prospects and limitations, the world of the extreme Floor Area Ratio.

Vast areas of the Netherlands and other states seem to be filling up with a suburban ’matter’ of low cost housing, low rent offices, warehouses and other low density elements. How are we to cope with this matter that is turning our environments into one ’sea of mediocrity’, one vast ’greyness’, an equation of difference and individualism? Is it possible to reconsider this situation by carrying density to extremes and ruffling the texture with inserts or polarities?

FARMAX. Conceived and edited by Winy Maas and Jacob van Rijs with Richard Koek and produced by MVRDV, FARMAX reads as an architectural narrative
