The collection holds around 80% of the work of OMA and Rem Koolhaas from 1975 onwards. The archive collection consists of a 1500 m2 space with a wide variety of materials like paintings, collages, samples, study and presentation models. A wide range of paperwork is also part of the collection and frequently used for research.
