“One of the exciting things about architecture is that it gives you so many reasons to be modest because there are so many levels on which you can fail.” – Rem Koolhaas
“It’s rare for an architect to cause any kind of sensation outside the world of architecture, but Dutchman Rem Koolhaas – one of the most controversial and audacious architects in history – dared to question conventional aesthetics with his visionary theories about urban society.
Critic, social commentator and oftentimes agitator, Koolhaas is responsible for creating outstanding structures such as the Dutch Embassy in Berlin and the Guggenheim Heritage Museum in Las Vegas. A Kind of Architect takes us on a journey through his life and to the heart of his ideas.”
