As the headline event accompanying OMA/Progress, all seven OMA
Partners came together tonight for their first ever public
conversation. The talk, called 'Show & Tell', took place in the
Barbican's 1,200-seat theatre. Tickets sold out in a matter of
hours. Rem Koolhaas, Victor van der Chijs, Reinier de Graaf, Ellen
van Loon, Shohei Shigematsu, Iyad Alsaka and David Gianotten
discuss their roles within OMA, and how new ideas are transforming
the 36-year-old practice. The discussion was chaired by Chris
Dercon, director of Tate Modern.
Show & Tell is the first in a series of lectures by OMA's
Partners, which continues with David Gianotten, Partner in Charge
of OMA Asia, discussing speed in architecture. This
lecture will take place at the Barbican Cinema 2 this Thursday, 27
October, at 7:30pm.
