Dutch architect, architectural theorist and urban thinker Rem Koolhaas
(born 1944) has been a protagonist of the international architectural
avant-garde since the 1970s; his numerous worldwide awards include the
Pritzker Prize in 2000 for his lifetime achievement. Through a series of
essays, this book interprets his many buildings and projects by drawing
on Koolhaas' own theoretical oeuvre of polemics, manifestos,
interviews, books such as Delirious New York and his so-called
"design patents." In these writings, Koolhaas articulates a design
method that links theory and practice, whereby an idea is applied to
several projects over a period of time, so that it can continuously
evolve. This book not only orients this method within architectural
history, but also shows how it repositions the function of the authors
or the architects themselves.
