How Do We Make Better Cities?
The Architectural Review presents Reinier de Graaf
Friday, 18 November 2016
Reinier de Graaf, OMA partner, joined The Architectural Review at ANCB to discuss our cities and the spread of #Notopia.
OMA partner Reinier de Graaf presented his position on the scourge of #Notopia – a global pandemic of generic buildings that makes London look like Tianjin and Dubai like Dallas. In this copycat environment, how can we support cultural identity?
During the talk, de Graaf also offered insight into his creative work, including his new Design Museum project in London.
