Profile

Reinier de Graaf joined OMA in 1996. He is responsible for building and master-planning projects in Europe, Russia, and the Middle East, including the new G-Star Headquarters in Amsterdam (completed 2014), De Rotterdam (completed 2013), the 'Stadskantoor' (City Hall) under construction in Rotterdam, the Tors Torn residential tower in Stockholm, and the Commonwealth Institute (under construction) in London.

In 2002, he became director of AMO, the think tank of OMA, and produced ‘The Image of Europe’, an exhibition illustrating the history of the European Union. He has overseen AMO's increasing involvement in sustainability and energy planning, including Zeekracht: a strategic masterplan for the North Sea, the publication in 2010 of "Roadmap 2050: A Practical Guide to a Prosperous, Low-Carbon Europe" with the European Climate Foundation, and "The Energy Report," a global plan for 100 percent renewable energy by 2050, with the WWF.

De Graaf has recently worked extensively in Moscow, overseeing OMA's proposal to design the masterplan for the Skolkovo Centre for Innovation, the "Russian Silicon Valley," and leading a consortium which proposed a development concept for the Moscow Agglomeration: an urban plan for Greater Moscow. He recently curated two exhibitions, ‘On Hold’ at the British School in Rome in 2011 and the travelling exhibition ‘Public Works: Architecture by Civil Servants’ (Venice Biennale, 2012; Berlin, 2013).
