Shohei Shigematsu begins with a quick review of OMA’s frustrated attempts to build in Southern California, from the project for a Universal Studios headquarters in 1996 through their proposal for the Broad Museum (2010), ending with three projects that are going forward. Shigematsu describes the evolution of OMA from a collective to its current configuration of nine partners, each with their own distinctive agendas and projects. He discusses a number of OMA New York projects, both completed and in progress.
