Winy Maas debates design and terrorism live from Dutch Design Week

Winy Maas leads debate on design's role in preventing terrorism live from Dutch Design Week

MVRDV founder Winy Maas joins a panel of speakers to discuss the relationship between city design and terrorism in this talk, which is the third in our Good Design for a Bad World series live from Dutch Design Week.

As terrorists begin to target pedestrians streets and city squares, this panel discussion hosted by Dutch Design Week international ambassador Marcus Fairs questions whether better design can help to prevent these attacks.

The livestream has now ended, but you can watch the panel discussion above in full or on Dezeen's Facebook page.

Winy Maas is joined by German novelist Ingo Niermann, security expert Tinus Kanters and Rotterdam-based architect Marina Otero Verzier to discuss whether the rising threat of terrorism can be solved through urban planning.

Dezeen is hosting five panel discussions as part of our Good Design for a Bad World initiative. The talks are free to attend, and are taking place at the People's Pavilion at KetelHuisplein 1, in the Strijp-S district of Eindhoven.

The rising issue of pollution leads our next talk, which will begin at 12.30pm CEST on Sunday 22 October.
