The Barbican Art Gallery has opened its doors to reveal an architectural exhibition like no other. Displaying the work of the Office for Metropolitan Architecture – otherwise known as OMA – this exhibition holds some of the most intriguing architectural titbits from collections and archives across the globe. The inventive exhibition is the working of Belgian designers and curators Rotor, who have had the opportunity to delve behind the scenes of this ingenious organisation, to celebrate OMA’s sometimes audacious and unconventional architecture.
OMA is currently working on designs such as: headquarters for China Central Television in Beijing, Shenzhen Stock Exchange, a new headquarters for Rothschild Bank in London and Netherland’s largest building, De Rotterdam.
With OMA’s eye to revolutionalise conventional architecture and change the way in which buildings can be seen or used, the OMA/Progress exhibition promises to delight, challenge and inspire. Whether modern living is your thing or you just like the little models, it’s worth a trip. (Words: Sian Goldby)
