Euralille urban masterplan

The Office for Metropolitan Architecture founded by Rem Koolhaas is active all across the globe. The urban masterplan for Lille was the first major foreign commission to be executed. As a junction for high-speed rail, this provincial city was developing into a central point in a European network of cities. OMA rejected the old city that is tied to a physical location and set a fragmented city against it, a city that is never complete and is constantly changing because of transport systems as well as electronic and economic networks. Euralille demonstrates Koolhaas’s fascination with the metropolis, by which he comments on the world as well as shaping it.
