OMA/Progress continues at the Barbican


OMA/Progress, an exhibition exploring the work of Rem Koolhaas’ influential practice OMA, continues to run in The Barbican Gallery, London until 19 February 2012.

Co-founded in 1975 by Rem Koolhaas as the Office for Metropolitan Architecture, OMA comprises seven partners and a staff of around 280 architects, designers, researchers and support staff in offices in Rotterdam, New York, Beijing and Hong Kong. OMA/Progress is the first major presentation of OMA’s work in the UK and coincides with the opening of their first buildings here, Rothschild Bank HQ in the City of London and a Maggie’s Centre in Gartnavel, Glasgow.

The exhibition is curated and designed by the Belgium-based collective, Rotor. Through extensive behind-the-scenes access to the practice the exhibition comprises a compelling selection of materials from archives, collections and OMA-offices across the globe.
