Today´s article is all about 2017 AD100: OMA New York. OMA is an international practice operating within the traditional boundaries of architecture and urbanism. AMO, a research and design studio, applies architectural thinking to domains beyond.
“Beauty is discovered through the interrogation of possibility,” says Shohei Shigematsu, who, along with Jason Long, heads up OMA New York.
MA’s buildings and masterplans around the world insist on intelligent forms while inventing new possibilities for content and everyday use.
OMA is led by nine partners – Rem Koolhaas, Ellen van Loon, Reinier de Graaf, Shohei Shigematsu, Iyad Alsaka, David Gianotten, Chris van Duijn, Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli, Jason Long – and maintains offices in Rotterdam, New York, Beijing, Hong Kong, Doha and Dubai.
