Texto Adicional:

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 to cope with this matter that is turning our environments into one 'sea of mediocracy', one vast 'greyness', an equation of difference and individualism? Is it possible to reconsider this situation by carrying densities to an extreme and ruffling the texture with inserts or polarities? This book examines the possibilities of these extremes. It sets out to discover the prospects and limitations, the world of the extreme Floor Area Ratio, FARMAX. It is conceived and edited by Winy Maas and Jacob van Rijs with Richard Koek and produced by MVRDV in Rotterdam. It is construed as an architectural narrative composed of studies and designs carried out by MVRDV and students of Delft University of Technology, the Berlage Institute in Amsterdam and the Academy of Architecture and Urban Planning in Rotterdam, plus various contributions by other authors.
