    El Croquis 131-132 is a comprehensive monograph on the work of Dutch architectural firm OMA, covering their work from 1996 to 2006. This era saw OMA establish themselves as one of the most important and influential voices in contemporary architecture, with their signature approach to adaptation.

    OMA’s Architectural Approach:

    • Adaptation: OMA’s work is characterized by its focus on adaptation. They are interested in creating buildings that are responsive to their context, and they often use existing buildings or structures as a starting point for their designs.

    • Complexity and Simplicity: OMA’s work is also characterized by its focus on complexity and simplicity. They are interested in creating buildings that are both rich and nuanced, and they often use a variety of materials, textures, and forms to create a sense of depth and complexity. However, they also strive to create buildings that are elegant and simple, and they often use clean lines and uncluttered spaces to create a sense of clarity and order.

    • Materiality: OMA are masters of materiality, using a variety of materials in unexpected ways to create rich and textured surfaces. They are particularly interested in the use of industrial materials, such as concrete, steel, and glass, which they often combine to create a sense of strength and durability.

    Key Projects:

    • Seattle Public Library, Seattle, USA (2004): This library is a striking example of OMA’s adaptation approach. The building is a former warehouse that has been transformed into a library, and it features a series of sloping roofs that create a sense of dynamism and movement.
    • Casa da Música, Porto, Portugal (2005): This concert hall is another example of OMA’s adaptation approach. The building is a former shipyard that has been transformed into a concert hall, and it features a series of undulating forms that create a sense of acoustical richness.
    • Maison de la Culture du Parc de la Villette, Paris, France (1994): This cultural center is a major example of OMA’s complexity and simplicity. The building is made of a variety of materials, including steel, glass, and concrete, and it features a series of curving forms that create a sense of movement and dynamism.

    Beyond Form and Materiality:

    El Croquis 131-132 goes beyond showcasing OMA’s stunning architectural creations. It delves into the theoretical underpinnings of their work, exploring their engagement with contemporary architectural discourse, the relationship between architecture and adaptation, and the importance of creating buildings that are both functional and expressive.

    A Legacy of Influence:

    OMA’s work has had a profound impact on contemporary architecture, inspiring a generation of architects to approach their projects with a focus on adaptation, complexity, and simplicity. El Croquis 131-132 serves as a valuable resource for architects, students, and anyone interested in exploring the rich and nuanced world of OMA’s architecture.
