OMA Rem Koolhaas

Location

Main Office:
Rotterdam
Heer Bokelweg 149
3032 AD Rotterdam
The Netherlands

Additional Offices: New York, Hong Kong, Beijing

Also See: AMO

History:

OMA was founded in 1975 by Rem Koolhaas, Elia and Zoe Zenghelis and Madelon Vriesendorp as a collaborative office practicing  architecture, urbanism, and cultural analysis. The firm’s trademark is designing a structure that has the capability of having many different applications using the same space.(1)

Two buildings that exemplify this idea of multi-use space are Maison a Bordeaux and the Dee & Charles Wyly Theatre. While Maison a Bordeaux is a residence and the theater is a commercial project, both use simple mechanical systems to raise and lower platforms, seating, ceilings, and other aspects of the structure to adapt to whatever is needed out of the building.
