Back of House: An Inside View of OMA's Creative Machine
Behind OMA's well-known architecture and publications lies an established system that is constantly capable of generating ideas, questioning the typical approaches and discovering alternative possibilities; it is a strong methodology with an unpredictable outcome that may vary from one project to the other. This is a system that encourages collective bottom-up thinking by embracing and integrating creative talents within.
The process of thinking and creation at OMA/AMO will be presented in this lecture through a few case studies, supported by behind-the-scenes materials.
