This autumn, the Barbican Art Gallery is transformed by an exhibition on OMA, one of the most influential architecture practices working today. Celebrated as much for their daring and unconventional ideas as their inventive buildings, the work of OMA and its think tank AMO anticipates the architectural, engineering and cultural ideas transforming our material world.



Co-founded in 1975 by Rem Koolhaas as the Office for Metropolitan Architecture, OMA, comprises seven partners and a staff of around 280 architects, designers, researchers and support staff in offices in Rotterdam, New York, Beijing and Hong Kong. OMA/Progress is the first major presentation of OMA’s work in the UK and coincides with the opening of their first buildings here, Rothschild Bank HQ in the City of London and a Maggie’s Centre in Gartnavel, Glasgow.

The exhibition is curated and designed by the Belgium-based collective, Rotor. To make their portrait of OMA, Rotor have enjoyed unprecedented behind-thescenes access and the opportunity to ask candid questions. The result is a compelling selection of materials from archives, collections and OMA-offices across the globe.
