Starting from the theoretical thinking of ‘Spatial Narration’ and ‘Programming’, this paper investigates the meaning of ‘Programming’ in ‘Spatial Narration’. Viewing ‘Programming’ as a core mean of spatial narration, this paper explores its representation and significance in architectural projects designed by OMA. Its performance includes reprogramming of the horizontal and vertical spatial order and temporal sequence in experience, as well as the juxtaposition of multiple temporal and functional contexts. Through careful programming in design process, OMA embeds a critical sense of identity and a sense of place with rich temporal and spatial experience in its architecture.
