Maurice is the educational director at AMS Institute and responsible for the inter- and trans-disciplinary courses and the educational Living Lab. His focus is the MSc Metropolitan Analysis, Design and Engineering (MADE) program, which he has designed with academic partners. In addition, Maurice is tasked with the design and implementation of the summer school, hosting MIT courses and developing professional education.

His can be described best by his belief that no single stakeholder alone can make a metropolis move into a specific direction. Maurice strongly believes that metropolitan solutions require cooperation between knowledge institutes, companies and governments as well as between cities, citizens and civil society. People and their impact on urban life fascinate Maurice. Hence, all off his academic findings and educational innovations culminate in projects employing the living lab approach and research on public space.

Maurice is a registered Dutch architect, urban designer and planner. He is affiliated with the chair of urban design at the Delft University of Technology as an academic and a guest professor at several universities abroad. His research is thus also supported by fieldwork around the globe, which results in fruitful collaborations and valuable lessons that inspire his local work. Yet a strong home base helps Maurice to understand his position, the Dutch perspective and leads to cross-cultural insights.

“I’m excited to see our students span boundaries to challenge the city and co-create metropolitan solutions to improve our quality of urban life.”
