Hernan Diaz Alonso introduces Oliver Lang.

Lang describes seeking to combine professional practice and research by looking at transformation, globalization, mass customization and dynamic change in architecture.

Lang presents a competition for a multi-program development in Dallas, an architecture school in Valparaiso, Chile, and a feasibility study for a Museum of Extreme Culture (MOX). Lang discusses the methodologies of design for these projects, stressing his interest in the flexibility of spaces and functions and efficient fabrication methods.

He presents a prefab housing proposal, a marketing center, a school competition in Chile and a competition for a monument and bridges in a new town near Beijing, China. Lang’s projects demonstrate his interest in prefabrication and mass-customization while simultaneously allowing choice and differentiation.

Lang presents a project for a new prototype gallery and a church in Vancouver. These two projects continue his investigation into prefabrication and new building technologies, as well as the development of adaptable and flexible spaces.
