Rem Koolhaas: A Kind Of Architect
Rarely has an architect caused as much sensation outside of the architecture community as Rem Koolhaas. His outstanding creations - such as the Dutch Embassy in Berlin, the Seattle Library and the Casa da Musica concert hall in porto - are working examples of the Dutchman's visionary theories about architecture and urban society. But Koolhaas's work is as much about ideas as it is about constructing buildings; he is equally celebrated as a writer and social commenter. For Koolhaas, what is essential is not to create individual masterpieces, but to provoke and excite through the wide range of his activities.
Rem Koolhaas: A Kind Of Architect is an engaging portrait of a visionary man that takes us to the heart of his idea. Directors Markus Heidingfelder and Min Tesch have made a visually inventive, thought-provoking portrait of the architect, prompting Rem Koolhaas to state, "It's the only film about me that i have liked."
