As part of the Connected City Design Challenge, the Dallas Museum of Art will host the OMA*AMO Connected City Lecture.
OMA is a leading international partnership practicing architecture, urbanism, and cultural analysis. The counterpart to OMA’s architectural practice is AMO, a research studio based in Rotterdam. While OMA remains dedicated to the realization of buildings and masterplans, AMO operates in areas beyond the traditional boundaries of architecture, including media, politics, sociology, renewable energy, technology, fashion, curating, publishing, and graphic design. OMA's buildings and masterplans around the world, including the Wyly Theatre in the Dallas Arts District, Milstein Hall at Cornell University, Seattle Central Library, and the Prada Epicenter in Los Angeles, insist on intelligent forms while inventing new possibilities for content and everyday use. OMA is led by six partners— Rem Koolhaas, Ellen van Loon, Reinier de Graaf, Shohei Shigematsu, Iyad Alsaka, and David Gianotten— and sustains an international practice with offices in Rotterdam, New York, Beijing, Hong Kong, and soon Doha.
