Reinier de Graaf

Watch an audio slideshow featuring photographs of the master plan for Ras al-Khaimah’s new capital city from the Office for Metropolitan Architecture. The firm won the competition to execute HH Sheikh Saud’s dream of a new self-sustaining financial center in the emirate.

OMA partner Reinier de Graaf, who is now responsible for the firm’s growing engagement in the Middle East, speaks with us about the unique opportunity to design a new city in the desert.
