In the coming months, OMI is entirely devoted to OMA, the Office for Metropolitan Architecture. With the reopening of the Kunsthal, the completion of De Rotterdam and Timmerhuis this is a perfect opportunity to profile the work of OMA. OMI publishes a special map, organises excursions, and an accompanying exhibition at OMI’s own location gives insight into the work of the office in Rotterdam and The Hague.
The cities of Rotterdam and The Hague occupied a special position in the development of the early years of OMA. The region boasts the highest density of OMA projects in the world, with countless studies, designs, built and (already) demolished works. OMA has reflected on every facet of the urban experience in this region: buildings, urban planning, parks, interiors, culture, pop, dance and infrastructure. OMA Fiction | Non Fiction is a voyage of discovery through the work of OMA in Rotterdam and The Hague, past 40 years of thinking about this urban region. The map encourages tourists, architecture enthusiasts and OMA fans to experience the southern Randstad.
With the launch of the map, OMI offers a program that connects Rotterdam and The Hague, with city excursions and tours. OMI is also the venue for an exhibition where all the realised projects are displayed on large-format photographs and a ‘carpet’ shows 25 fictitious projects. A special evening program of film screenings and presentations offers an insight into the work of OMA.
