"You can almost reconstruct the story of OMA day by day; it’s like a massive diary written by more than a thousand hands." OMA archivist Talitha van Dijk will take you and a guest into the treasure trove that is the archive, which goes back to the firm's earliest days and documents of projects both built and unrealized. In the Vlaardingen and Rotterdam depots, you can get fresh insight into the design process by looking at the study models and different iterations of projects that you have walked through in person and know well; or look at influential projects that never got started.

Talitha van Dijk is an architectural historian and the archivist for OMA| AMO, and in that capacity, may know more about the firm's work than anyone, except some of its principals.


This lot ships from New York, NY, US.
