Product description

This book presents a recent lecture and seminar given by architect Rem Koolhaas at the Rice University School of Architecture. In this compact volume, Koolhaas addresses the urban and architectural implications of extra-large construction, using as examples three of OMA's important large-scale projects: the Zeebrugge Ferry Terminal in Belgium, the Tres Grande Bibliotheque in Paris, and the Karlsruhe Center for Art and Media Technology in Germany.Tackling questions about the difficult state of urbanism and modernism in contemporary Europe, America, and Asia, this slim volume forms a concise and coherent explanation of the theories and polemics of Koolhaas and OMA. This beautifully designed book serves as an inexpensive alternative and companion to Koolhaas's recent "S, M, L, XL."

Review quote

Distills rather than inflates the architect's thoughts.... " offers a way to pierce the hype surrounding its subject. Brad Weiners, "Wired" For those with neither the finance nor the physique for (yes) Rem Koolhaas's monster "S, M, L, XL, " help is at hand. "Architects' Journal"
