Ole Scheeren speaks about architecture as collaboration and storytelling

For architect Ole Scheeren, the people who live and work inside a building are as much a part of that building as concrete, steel and glass. He asks: Can architecture be about collaboration and storytelling instead of the isolation and hierarchy of a typical skyscraper? Visit five of Scheeren’s buildings — from a twisted tower in China to a floating cinema in the ocean in Thailand — and learn the stories behind them.

Buro Ole Scheeren

Our projects are prototypes that engage new conceptual possibilities and explicitly manifest how the spaces in which we live and work can be reimagined. We see architecture as a matrix of hybrid narratives from which to construct future realities. From city-defining structures to intimate spaces, our work embodies a rigorous search for new potentials to realize specific and unexpected solutions inhabited by the lives of people and cities.
