Featuring Reinier de Graaf This event is now finished
In conversation with OMA
OMA’s Reinier de Graaf talks to the Design Museum chief curator Justin McGuirk about the new museum architecture, politics and OMA's installation in Fear and Love: Reactions to a Complex World.
Reinier de Graaf will discuss OMA’s work on the Commonwealth Institute and the adjacent Holland Green, the fallout from Brexit, and his life and work in a must-see conversation to mark the opening of the new Design Museum.
Reinier will also provide insight on“The Pan-European Living Room”, OMA’s (the architecture practice founded by Rem Koolhaas) new installation featured in the Design Museum’s opening exhibition, Fear and Love: Reactions to a Complex World.
In response to the recent Brexit vote, The Pan-European Living Room installation is furnished with a piece of design from each of the 28 EU member states. The installation proposes that our very notion of the domestic interior has been shaped by an ideal of European cooperation and trade. The centrepiece of the room is a vertical blind in the form of the OMA-designed barcode flag for the EU.
