Having a combined work experience of over 30 years on signature museum, civic and institutional projects worldwide, the founding partners, Bing Lin and Hiroshi Okamoto have joined their expertise in collaboration forming OLI Architecture PLLC in 2010.
With a vision towards the future, accompanied by a vast disciplinary understanding of the built environment, and respect of the specific cultural parameters of each project, the firm offers full service architectural design. OLI’s specialty expertise consists of civic and cultural building design, museography, exhibition design, residential and hospitality design.
The firm's approach is to investigate the specific nature of each project to craft a design response to meet the aspirations of the client and the detailed requirements of the future occupants. OLI transforms these contextual studies using parametric models, computational analyses, to create the unique tectonics of each project. These are then articulated with local construction practices and standards, to create a unique building that merges with the cultural environment of its site.
Services offered include Planning, Concept Design, Construction Documentation and Construction Administration. Company offices are located in New York, Shanghai and Paris.
