  • http://atelierone.wordpress.com/project-four/ “Past reception [...] is a meeting room filled with smaller maquettes.

  • http://www.archined.nl/en/reviews/2010/engels/blue-foam/ “Archiving the models allowed architects to keep the traces of creativity for a longer period of time; de- archiving them meant they could rediscover those traces of design invention that time had left intact.” Albena Yaneva Made by the Office for Metropolitan Architecture: an ethnography of design, 2009, page 65
  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/wojtekgurak/5827545090/ “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 Yaneva Made by the Office for Metropolitan Architecture: an ethnography of design, 2009, page 86
  • “Ten years ago the NetherlandsArchitecture Institute (NAI) proposed toacquire OMAs archive. They sent an arthistorian for four months to the officesbasement storage to make an inventoryof all the items. When the work wasdone, OMA decided not to sell.
