Cofounder and Chairman, Dynamic Cities Foundation, TRENDBUERO ASIA-PACIFIC, Beijing

Dutch architect Neville Mars has produced a prolific body of work over the last decade, spanning the worlds of art, architecture, documentary, video installation, urban research and creative writing. The foundation of his work is a deep passion for the metropolis and a profound understanding of the urban context and its cultural and technical workings. The increasingly commercial urban environment is a continual theme in his work, from his beginning at O.M.A., the architecture office of Rem Koolhaas, to his current role as creative director of the Dynamic City Foundation (DCF) in Beijing, an international research and design platform investigating the rapidly changing urban environment of China.
