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 seven partners - Rem Koolhaas, Ellen van Loon, Reinier de Graaf, Shohei Shigematsu, Iyad Alsaka, David Gianotten and Managing Partner, Victor van der Chijs - and sustains an international practice with offices in Rotterdam, New York, Beijing, Hong Kong, and soon Doha.
OMA-designed buildings currently under construction include the Taipei Performing Arts Centre; the new headquarters for China Central Television - a tower reinvented as a loop - in Beijing; the adjacent Television Cultural Centre; Shenzhen Stock Exchange - China's equivalent of the NASDAQ exchange for hi-tech industries; three buildings in Doha, Qatar; and De Rotterdam, the largest building in the Netherlands.
OMA's recently completed projects include New Court, the headquarters for Rothschild bank in London; Milstein Hall, an extension to the Architecture, Art, and Planning school at Cornell; Maggie's Centre, a cancer care centre in Glasgow (all 2011); Wyly Theatre in Dallas (with REX, 2009); and Prada Transformer, a rotating multi-use pavilion in Seoul (2009). Other acclaimed buildings include the Casa da Música in Porto (2005); the Seattle Central Library (2004); the Netherlands Embassy in Berlin (2003); the IIT Campus Center in Chicago (2003); and the Prada Epicenter in New York (2001).
