Projects completed by the Rotterdam-based firm are characterised by an experimental architectural style and interdisciplinary approach.
The studio recently announced plans to build a series of stacked terraces at the Shimao ShenKong International Centre in Shenzhen, which Maas describes as an "urban living room".
Alongside his work for MVRDV, Maas also holds a teaching position in urbanism and architecture at his alma mater.
In 2008, he founded a research institute called The Why Factor, with which he has authored and publish a number of urban theory books.
Other creatives featured in our Screentime series include dean of the Pratt Institute School of Architecture Harriet Harriss, trend forecaster Li Edelkoort, UNStudio founder Ben van Berkel, The World Around curator Beatrice Galilee, filmmaker Gary Hustwit and British-Israeli architect Ron Arad.
