Shohei Shigematsu, a partner at OMA and director of its New York office, delivers this talk at the University of Michigan’s Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning. Shigematsu has been a driving force behind many of OMA’s projects, including the China Central Television Headquarters in Beijing, and the Shenzhen Stock Exchange Headquarters. His cultural projects currently in progress include a museum expansion for the New Museum in New York City; an extension to the Albright Knox Gallery in Buffalo, New York; and an event space for the Wilshire Boulevard Temple in Los Angeles. His urban and public space designs include the Willow Campus masterplan, an integrated mixed-use village for Facebook in Menlo Park, California; a mixed-use development in Santa Monica; a new civic centre in Bogota, Colombia; a post-Hurricane Sandy urban water strategy for New Jersey; and in Toronto, the largest transit-oriented development currently underway in North America. He has collaborated with multiple artists – including Cai Guo- Qiang, Marina Abramović, Kanye West and Taryn Simon – and is currently redesigning Sotheby’s New York headquarters.
