For more than 25 years the practice of OMA (Office for Metropolitan Architecture) has maintained a strong relationship with the city of The Hague. After moving from London to The Netherlands in 1978 one of OMAs first projects was their design of the Dutch parliament building in the center of The Hague. Since then The Hague has become the city with the largest number of OMA built projects in the world. With the exhibition OMA in The Hague Stroom presents the first-ever survey of all studies, models, masterplans and completed buildings, such as the Netherlands Dance Theatre, pop music venue Paard van Troje and the two underground stations of the Souterrain. In addition, several examples of the practices unrealized projects will be shown: their prize-winning design for City Hall, the imagined second city center at the Prins Claus Plein and the proposed transformation of the A13 Motorway into a Champs Elysées-like boulevard. Future OMA projects for The Hague will also be featured in the exhibition.

OMA is a leading international partnership practicing contemporary architecture, urbanism and cultural analysis. The office is led by six partners: Rem Koolhaas, Ole Scheeren, Ellen van Loon, Reinier de Graaf, Floris Alkemade and managing director Victor van der Chijs. To accomodate a wide range and diversity of projects throughout the world, OMA maintains offices in Europe (OMA Rotterdam), North America (OMA New York) and Asia (OMA Beijing).
