Maurice Nio is one of the most active and interesting contemporary Dutch architects . Born in 1959, he completed his architecture degree in Delft - Faculty of Architecture of the Technical University -, Holland, in 1988 with a unique thesis: the project for a villa for singer Michael Jackson, a work that lays the foundations for his unique architecture style. Between 1991 and 1996 he creates a number of projects working for BDG Architekten Ingenieurs, including the giant incinerator ‘aviTwente’. A few years later Nio designs the ‘Zuidtangent’, the longest public transport line in Europe. In 2000 he founds his won studio Nio architecten in Rotterdam - He co-founded NOX Architects with Lars Spuybroek - . Architect Joan Almekinders has also collaborated with the studio since 2002. Maurice Nio has also pursued an intense teaching career both in his home country and abroad. Nio himself has said that this activity interest him less than others, such as producing videos or writing books - You Have the Right to Remain Silent in 1998 and Unseen I Slipped Away in 2004 - and articles about architecture and urban development, as well as about dance, photography and television. Maurice Nio has worked exclusively in Holland, but his talent has made him famous in Italy: he recently designed the project for the extension and renovation of the Centro Luigi Pecci in Prato that is set to become a contemporary art museum.
