Madelon Vriesendorp

Madelon Vriesendorp, born in 1945 in Holland was, together with her husband Rem Koolhaas, Zoe and Elia Zenghelis, a founding member of the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA). Although her work was vastly used for book and magazine covers, (notably on the cover of Delirious New York in 1978 by Rem Koolhaas), the growing fame of her husband belittled the importance of Vriesendorp’s, – and Zoe Zenghelis’s, as well-, artistic contribution within the group: both artists had to wait many years to get the recognition they deserved.



After moving to Ithaca in 1972 together with Koolhaas, Vriesendorp began working on a number of sketches, drawings and paintings under the name “Manhattan“, inhabited by anthropomorphic architectures and infused by oniric imagination and surreal themes.
