The global firm OMA has worked extensively in renovation, retail and the arts—often in an engaging mix of all three. In exploring such recent projects as the BLOX exhibition center in Copenhagen and the Fondation Galeries Lafayette for contemporary art in Paris--as well as the adaptive re-use of the Factory in Manchester cultural venue, the ongoing restoration and re-thinking of the KaDeWe department store in Berlin and the ground-up building in Vienna that will combine a KaDeWe store and hotel, van Loon will discuss the profound, positive impact of the architecture on the surrounding urban context.
