A Forum About New Trajectories in Residential Architecture.
Vincent Taapken is a representative of a new generation real estate developer in the Netherlands. He is enthusiastic and passionate, stimulating people to think differently on urban issues. He finds and inspires partners who are willing to invest their time, knowledge and experience into joint implementation of innovative urban projects.
Educated as a business manager, Taapken found himself working in the technocratic and financially driven world of real estate. He founded his company New Industry Development in 2008 with the ambition of reshaping the traditional real estate industry into a more relevant, interdisciplinary, transparent and open industry. Taapken’s work fits into a turbulent time, when sustainable urban development requires a clear vision on detail, distinctiveness and new forms of cooperation. Where major developers miss opportunities in the small, Taapken recognizes how local, precise initiatives can impact urban futures.
