Rem Koolhaas to give lecture at Alserkal Avenue in Dubai next week

Dutch architect and founder of OMA, Rem Koolhaas, will be giving a lecture on the 16th of March at The Yard in Alserkal Avenue in Dubai. The talk will take place in the morning at 10 am.

Entitled ‘Current Preoccupations’ Koolhaas’ lecture coincides with the opening of Concrete, OMA’s first project in the UAE. 

The 600 square metre project will become Alserkal’s primary event space, designed to host large-scale art exhibitions, symposia and conferences, fashion, film, and corporate events, as well as private functions.

Recently, Instagram users have captured OMA’s Qatar National Library project nearing completion in the country’s capital.

New York City-based photographer Yueqi Li has also shared some images of the completed Qatar Foundation headquarters, located next door.
