In this next movie from our series filmed at the OMA/Progress exhibition at the Barbican in London, which took place from 6 October 2012 to 19 February 2012, OMA partner Reinier de Graaf talks about the Dutch architecture studio’s preoccupation with the megacity and its hinterland – “the vacuum left in the wake of the city’s expansion.” He suggests that we’re moving to an era of city states and this is leading to a potential new relevance for architects as civic leaders.
