With the question of "what does the future city look like?" in mind, the firm focused on flexibility when creating this color blocked minimalist structure as the future brings decreasing resources, increased population and climate change.
“Through gaming and other tools, (W)ego explores participatory design processes to model the competing desires and egos of each resident in the fairest possible way,” said co-founder of MVRDV and Dutch Design Week ambassador Winy Maas.
The installation, open to the public, showcases nine urban dwellings in one possible configuration, with each unit having its own personality for the user that occupies it, such as the tropical pink section extending up a few floors, a lemon yellow privatized penthouse, a blue cave and more.
(W)ego is currently on display in Eindhoven, Netherlands until Sunday, October 29.
