For four decades Koolhaas has managed to stay at the top of his profession by producing creative, ground-breaking ideas at a record speed - how does he do it?

To keep thinking about what architecture could be. What I could be. Rem KoolhaasIndex Magazine, 2000

We look at the current moment and see where and in what way we could make a certain breakthrough. Rem KoolhaasOMA in conversation, Barbican 2011

What the OMA process focuses on is not the creator but the critic.

Rem KoolhaasINTELLIGENT DESIGN Can Rem Koolhaas kill the skyscraper? New Yorker, 2005

Of course its easier to use materials from the shelf, from the catalogue, but we cant be on the cutting edge if we do that. Kunl AdeyemiMade by the Ofce for Metropolitan Architecture: an ethnography of design, 2009, page 86

We really want every year at least 25% of our people to be new. And we want them to be young, bright people.

Victor van der ChijsInside OMA, William Wiles, Icon magazine, 149, 2011

You can walk out or you can stay the whole night and you can work here. You have a freedom to continue to work.

"When you have creative minds you get a lot of ideas. The luxury product is in the fact that we an actually test all of them. Stephanie AkkaouiInside OMA, William Wiles, Icon magazine, 149, 2011

Past reception [...] is a meeting room filled with smaller maquettes. At first glance there appear to be perspex and foam models for dozens of projects - but close up you see theyre all clearly the same site, [...], modelled over and over again.

The model [...] presents itself as a [...] complex entity composed of multitudes of little persons; it is much bigger, always richer in difference and complexity. Albena YanevaMade by the Ofce for Metropolitan Architecture: an ethnography of design, 2009, page 26

Archiving the models allowed architects to keep the traces of creativity for a longer period of time; dearchiving them meant they could rediscover those traces of design invention that time had left intact. Albena YanevaMade by the Ofce for Metropolitan Architecture: an ethnography of design, 2009, page 65

The abandoned and temporarily forgotten model of the private house came up to the office and re-entered the cycles of design. Lingering on the tables of models for months, it was finally taken with new assumptions, reshaped, refreshed and adjusted. Albena YanevaMade by the Ofce for Metropolitan Architecture: an ethnography of design, 2009, page 86

Ten years ago the Netherlands Architecture Institute (NAI) proposed to acquire OMA's archive. They sent an art historian for four months to the office's basement storage to make an inventory of all the items. When the work was done, OMA decided not to sell. Instead they hired the art historian as its archivist. RotorOMA/Progress free guide

We [...] spend a lot of time on making books, which is also part of the presentation materials. There is [...] an element of clarifying things for ourselves. Shohei ShigematsuMade by the Ofce for Metropolitan Architecture: an ethnography of design, 2009, page 33

Like the tables of models, the books are summaries of the design steps that make the material trajectory of a project traceable. They keep some traces of exploration, and present the results of design experimentation. Albena YanevaMade by the Ofce for Metropolitan Architecture: an ethnography of design, 2009, page 72

the OMA idea machine

The biggest part of our work [...] disappears automatically. [...] But you can't look at these designs as waste. They're ideas; they will survive in books.
