OMA/Rem Koolhaas

OMA/Rem Koolhaas, Interior view of the Eurodisney Hotel, 1988, DM 1797 IN SET – Drawing Matter

Rem Koolhaas (*1944), Interior view of the EuroDisney Hotel, Marne-la-Vallée, France, 1988. Print on translucent paper, 532 × 665 mm.

Looking up toward a glass ceiling, the drawing shows the atrium of this luxury hotel – a ‘bridge’, which was to connect an island to a park creating a sequence of flowing, layered landscapes both inside and outside. Using sinuous forms, rising to a view of the sky, Koolhaas turns an atrium in a flat, former urban wasteland into a self-contained and playful mountain topography of its own.


On the making and exhibition of the earlier works by OMA - the Boompjes Towers silkscreen from 1982 and the Medusa Raft, among others - Madelon Vriesendrop and an exploration of the Luce van Rooy Gallery.
