Source Books in Architecture No.14: Rem Koolhaas / OMA + AMO
Spaces for Prada is the most recent volume in the Source Books
in Architecture series. Among the topics discussed in the book
are the long-standing relationship with Prada and how the early
objectives in that relationship have both maintained and shifted.
An underlying theme to the conversations held with students and
faculty of the Knowlton School community is the topic of architectclient relationships, their history, their problems, and how they
have contributed to the discipline over time. Explicitly, a focus of
the conversation is a number of projects that OMA has developed
or completed with Prada, a large number of which are installationscale environments that manifest in the form of runway shows and
exhibitions. The challenge of such projects is to retain a commitment
to the political and cultural agenda that OMA embeds in the larger
and permanent buildings. Given the ephemerality and role of these
environments as literal backgrounds to highlighted events, the
projects are ideal scenarios in which to develop an architecture that
lacks the permanence of buildings while still carrying potency and
contributing to larger cultural discussions involving, for example,
event, place, concept, product, staging, the crowd, lighting, and
materiality.
