Rem Koolhaas does not do small talk. Almere was probably the first pure Rem moment, which is reassuring, because it is incomparably banal.

Rem Koolhaas is a cofounder of the Office for Metropolitan Architecture. Having worked as a journalist and scriptwriter before becoming an architect, in 1978 he published Delirious New York. His 1996 book S,M,L,XL summarized the work of OMA and established connections of contemporary society and architecture. He was listed among TIME magazine’s 100 most influential people in 2008, and among many international awards and exhibitions he received the Pritzker Prize (2000) and the Praemium Imperiale (2003).

OMA founder Rem Koolhaas thinks that too little attention is paid to the countryside, where change is happening at a faster rate than in most cities. In this illustrated essay, he argues that architects need to take stock of a new agricultural revolution. In this illustrated essay, the OMA founder argues that architects need to take stock of a new agricultural revolution. In architecture books we are bombarded with statistics confirming the ubiquity of the urban condition, while the symmetrical question is ignored – what are those moving to the city leaving behind? The rest, a significantly larger section of the world, falls under neglect and lack of knowledge.

In this book, the projects, buildings and theories of Koolhaas, as well as the other members of the Office for Metropolitan Architecture, are examined in chronological and thematic sequence, beginning with the period of Koolhaas’ education at the Architectural Association School of Architecture of London in the cultural context of the neo-avant-gardes at the end of the 60s and at the beginning of the 70s. The essay then discusses the period of his stay in New-York, his contact with Ungers, Eisenman, Rowe, as well as the polemic confrontation with the emerging post-modernism movement; and it concludes with the last critical contributions of Koolhaas. The starting point is design, which, in the case of Koolhaas, usually grows out of an alchemy of logic, influenced both by the proposed program (as viewed by the clients and institutions) and the metaphorical and autobiographical aspiration of the artist. The analysis is carried through to the details of construction, with special attention paid to the choice of materials, the configuration of the structure, and the role and position of the installation. The book is richly illustrated and includes an exhaustive bibliography.

This is a really cool book! I am a big fan of Rem Koolhaas and this was a great book that covered a lot of information that I never new about him and it really changed my perceptive of his work and even my own approach to my work.

This book is a tour-de-force. The best critical and biographical expose of Rem Koolhaas, from his very beginnings as a member of a team, to his later surge as an individual soprano, Roberto Gargiani unravels the multiple layers of meanings and theoretical constructs at the root of Koolhaas's multiple and varied works. The architectural projects emerge as part of a persistent search for an 'alternative post-modernity', one that builds upon the utopian visions of the 1920's, but also transcends them to propose an architecture of its time. Gargiani displays an intimate knowledge of each and every one of the works examined, from their schematic origins to their structural systems, while examining their role within the persistent theoretical adventure of the architect. This book is a refreshing account on the importance of 'ideas' and critical thinking, at a time when architecture seems to have surrendered to the amateurish, superficial 'play of curves' brought together under light...

It just arrived the time I expected. Without any problem at all. Thanks
