Soho, New York
Founded in 1975 by Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas and partners, the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) has since become one of the world’s most revered architectural and urban design practices. In 2000, Koolhaas received the Pritzker Architecture Prize—the industry’s most prestigious award. In addition to designing some of the world’s most respected buildings, he is also the author of Delirious New York and S,M,L,XL, widely considered to be two of the most influential architecture books ever written. Along with partners Shohei Shigematsu, Ellen van Loon, Reinier de Graaf, Iyad Alsaka, and David Gianotten, Koolhaas has expanded OMA into a global powerhouse with offices in Rotterdam, New York, Beijing, Hong Kong, and Doha.
The New York practice is led by Shohei Shigematsu, who joined OMA in 1998 and became a partner in 2008. Shigematsu oversees all of OMA’s projects in North America, including the development at Park Grove. Under his leadership, OMA has completed Milstein Hall at Cornell University, the National Beaux Arts Museum in Quebec City, and the Faena Arts Center in Miami Beach. Shigematsu has also led numerous high-profile collaborations that blur the line between architecture and art: He created a seven-screen pavilion in Cannes with Kanye West, oversaw a studio renovation for artist Cai Guo Qiang, and designed the Marina Abramovic Institute for the Preservation of Performance Art.
On the Park Grove project, OMA consulted with local partner
Arquitectonica, an architecture, interior design, and planning firm
led by Bernardo Fort-Brescia and Laurinda Spear.
