OMA is a leading international architectural firm supported by eight individual partners, with Shohei Shigematsu and Jason long OMA New York leader. With four main offices around the world, the group takes everyday buildings and shapes and reinvents them for the demands of our changing world.
To follow up on his first collection, Content and Koolhaas S, M, L, XL, Shigematsu and Long published a long-awaited monograph, titled OMA NY: search term. The latest volume features 23 architectural projects such as residential skyscrapers from New York to San Francisco, mixed-use developments taking place in Tokyo, alongside a number of intimate artist studios, museum expansions and park projects.
More than a simple architectural firm, OMA understands that its projects have just as much to do with urban planning and the cultural heart that underlies them. Therefore, the book aims to act as a kind of working metadata to trace the identity and attitudes of the group. There are a number of exciting interviews with artists and curators, chefs and designers, museum directors and policy makers. Among the list are Lisa Phillips and Massimiliano Gioni, to Virgil Abloh, Alice Waters, and David Byrne.
Published by Rizzoli, the semi-hardcover book spans 676 pages and is available for purchase at Amazon for US $ 85.
