You Say You Want a Rem-olution?

In William Drenttel‘s current article on Design Observer, he criticizes Rem Koolhaas‘ bad decisions in his most recent project, the Central Chinese Television Headquarters. But during a two-night speaking stand in LA and San Francisco last month, Koolhaas had a surprising message for the design masses: Starchitects (himself included) are too busy trying to win contests with individualistic, extravagant work to devote serious thought to the true impact of their projects. You can watch Koolhaas’ appearance at USC (click lecture series), or read the reviews: John King from the San Francisco Chronicle covered the SF appearance and Rob Forbes was there, too, but more in awe of Koolhaas’ koolness. It’s almost as if Koolhaas has been rehearsing for the inevitable attacks against him.

Apparently, Koolhaas has also been rehearsing his dead-on impersonation of Nosferatu.
