Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA)

Firm Description

OMA is a leading international partnership practicing architecture, urbanism, and cultural analysis. OMA's buildings and masterplans around the world insist on intelligent forms while inventing new possibilities for content and everyday use. OMA is led by ten partners - Rem Koolhaas, Ellen van Loon, Reinier de Graaf, Shohei Shigematsu, Iyad Alsaka, David Gianotten, Chris van Duijn, Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli, Jason Long and Michael Kokora - and maintains offices in Rotterdam, New York, Beijing, Hong Kong, and Doha.

OMA-designed buildings currently under construction include the Fondazione Prada in Milan, the Taipei Performing Arts Centre, the Qatar Foundation headquarters, the Qatar National Library, the Musee national des beaux-arts du Quebec, and a new building for the Garage Center for Contemporary Culture in Moscow.

OMA's recently completed projects include the G-Star Headquarters in Amsterdam (2014) Shenzhen Stock Exchange (2013); De Rotterdam, the largest building in the Netherlands (2013); the headquarters for China Central Television (2012); New Court, the headquarters for Rothschild bank in London (2011); Milstein Hall at Cornell University Ithaca, New York (2011); and Maggie's Centre, a cancer care centre in Glasgow (2011). Earlier buildings include the Casa da Música in Porto (2005), the Seattle Central Library (2004), and the Netherlands Embassy in Berlin (2003).
