The body of work architect Neville Mars has achieved in
the last ten years is both very diverse and highly characteristic.
The projects he has initiated range from art, architecture,
documentaries, video-installations, urban research and writing.
His work is widely published and presented and his art installations
have featured in several international exhibitions and art
The foundation of his work is a deep passion
for the metropolis and a profound understanding of the urban
context and its cultural and technical workings. In 2003,
Neville outlined a comprehensive research project to map
the rapid urbanization of China until 2020. For this project
he founded (with Saskia Vendel) the Beijing based Dynamic City Foundation (DCF), that mapped the rapid urbanization of China with a broad team of designers and researchers. The results are on http://BURB.tv
