Late July 1984 OMA was asked by SCC & B Lintas, one of the world’s top advertising agencies, to realize their new Dutch headquarters in the top of the – just built – World Trade Center in Amsterdam.

This was merely an interior design commission: for Lintas it was a strategic maneuver to take possession of the 3 top floors in the tallest tower of the WTC complex. As the WTC is a ‘normal’ office tower, designed for standard units, OMA was asked to reconsider the top of the building in order to create a distinguished ‘home’ for Lintas.
