So when I saw this poster in Metropolis magazine a few weeks ago I thought it would be a good opportunity to do it again.
However, in this post I will let Metropolis editor Paul Makovsky do it for you in a well illustrated poster. But this time we get a little more specific. Working for any ol' famous architect is definitely going in the right direction but working for Rem is well...the next best thing to a guarantee.
This poster, by virtue of showing the staggering amount of star-riffic practices OMA has produced is impressive. Whats even more impressive is that the list was incomplete, since it is missing a few including Space Group in Oslo, DnA in China and the appropriately named Rotterdam based
STAR architects. Yes! they did name themselves star-architects.
CORRECTION: We received word that the office is actually called: STAR strategies + architecture or STAR for short. Still a very impressive name.
The other lesson in this poster that I have pointed to in this blog is that you should marry an architect, for example in post number 24 Marry an Architect. You will notice that a few of these startups are married couples or partners who have met while working at OMA.
So the big lesson of this post is?: Go get a job at OMA and when you are there find a nice girl or guy (depending on your sexual preference), get married and start a firm together.
It's as simple as that.
