"There is something about architecture firm OMA's new monograph,
with its glossy, razor thin pages and jam-packed spreads, that
calls to mind the Uline catalogue. Covered in a plastic sheath, the
hefty coffee table book unpacks 23 projects past and present as a
way into the question: what is OMA NY? Expert witnesses are called.
Pioneers like Virgil Abloh, Alice Waters, David Byrne and
Massimiliano Gioni all make a case for what continues to put the
design studio ahead of its time." -CULTURED
"For the New York office's first monograph, OMA NY: Search Term (Rizzoli), the firm partners Shohei Shigematsu and Jason Long re-examine their most influential projects: residential skyscrapers in Miami and San Francisco, mixed-use developments in Tokyo and Houston, more intimate spaces such as the studio for artist Cai Guo-Qiang, and more." -SURFACE
