Whether you're a diehard OMA fan or an architecture enthusiast, you might not want to miss this exhibition if you'll be in Rotterdam anytime soon. The Office for Metropolitan Architecture, more commonly referred to as OMA, has a slew of their works on display in an exhibition titled "OMA Fiction | Non Fiction", currently at the aptly named Office for Metropolitan Information (OMI).
In addition to the exhibition, OMI also created a map and organized public programs that give insight into OMA's work across Rotterdam and The Hague over the last few decades. Both neighborhoods were vital in the firm's development during their early years.

"The region boasts the highest density of OMA projects in the world, with studies, designs, built and (already) demolished works. OMA has reflected on every facet of the urban experience in this region: buildings, urban planning, parks, interiors, culture, pop, dance and infrastructure," as OMI describes. "OMA Fiction | Non Fiction is a voyage of discovery through the work of OMA in Rotterdam and The Hague, past 40 years of thinking about this urban region."
OMA Fiction | Non Fiction features OMA's realized projects, which are displayed as large-format photographs, as well as a "carpet" that depicts 25 of their "fictitious projects".
To accompany the exhibit, OMI created a map (pictured above) as well as a program of city excursions and tours for people to explore Rotterdam and The Hague, including the southern area of Randstad.
"OMA Fiction | Non Fiction" is open until March 11, 2016.
