  • Pritzker Prize jury chairman, J. Carter Brown, commented, “RemKoolhaas is widely respected as one of the most gifted and original talents in world architecture today. The leader of a spectacularly irreverent generation of Dutch architects, his restless mind, conceptual brilliance, and ability to make a building sing have earned him a stellar place in the firmament of contemporary design.”
  •  Koolhaas is the founding partner of OMA, and of its research-oriented counterpart AMO, currently based in Rotterdam, Netherlands
  •  In 2005 he co-foundedVolume Magazine together with Mark Wigley and Ole Bouman.
  • In 2000 RemKoolhaas won the Pritzker Prize. “It seems fitting that as we begin a new millennium, the jury should choose an architect that seems so in tune with the future,” says Thomas J. Pritzker, president of The Hyatt Foundation, “In fact, Koolhaas has been called a prophet of a new modern architecture.”
  • His writing gained him recognition as a visionary early in his career. Delirious New York  was reprinted in 1994 under the title RemKoolhaas and the Place of Modern Architecture. The same year, he published S,M,L,XL in collaboration with the Canadian graphic designer Bruce Mau. Described as a novel about architecture, the book combines works produced by Koolhaas's Office for Metropolitan Architecture with photos, plans, fiction, cartoons and random thoughts. The title refers to the way the architect decided to arrange the book: instead of a chronological timeline, it is organized by project size.
  • He began his career as a journalist with Haagse Post in The Hague, and later tried his hand at screen writing both in the Netherlands and Hollywood.
  • Has taken up several masterplan projects all over the world over a span of over 25 years now ranging in various terrains from the middle east to USA and London.
  • Since 1995, Koolhaas has been a professor at Harvard University. He is leading a student-based research group that is studying different issues affecting the urban condition. The projects include a study of five cities in the Pearl River Delta in China; a study called The Roman System, focusing on the ancient Roman city; Shopping, an analysis of the role of retail consumption in the contemporary city; and a study of the African city, focusing specifically on Lagos, Nigeria. They were later joined by one of Koolhaas's students, ZahaHadid- who would soon go on to achieve success in her own right.
  • Maison a bordeoux
  • rak convention and exhibition centre---Designed by RemKoolhaas and Reinier de Graaf of Office for Metropolitan Architecture and looking like the Death Star, the centre consists of a spherical glass and steel nest and a very long, low building raised off the ground
  • Escape from the architectural ghetto is one of the major drivers and has always been. Mr. Koolhaas believes in the idea of social progress. The pace of global change leaves him unfazed and optimistic. His work eagerly reforges the broken link between technology and progress. Perhaps as a Dutchman, imprinted with his country's role as an international trading centre, he has fewer problems with global change than might someone of another nationality.
  • Seattle Public Library- It is characterized by ideas of fragmentation, an interest in manipulating ideas of a structure's surface or skin, non-rectilinear shapes which serve to distort and dislocate some of the elements of architecture, such as structure and envelope. The finished visual appearance of buildings that exhibit the many deconstructivist "styles" is characterized by a stimulating unpredictability and a controlled chaos.
  • Casa daMusica, Portugal
  • campus center iitchicago
  • Expressionist architecture is a movement from one of the branches of Post-modernism, which is developed in Northern Europe during the first decades of the 20th century. The expressionist architecture is an architecture that uses the form of a building as a means to express the inner sensitivities and feelings of the viewer or architect.
  • Maison a bordoux.
  • The railway has a huge impact on IIT's character: to proclaim a new beginning we enclosed the section above the campus centre in an acoustically isolating stainless steel tube, releasing the potential of the land surrounding it and creating a crucial part of IIT's image.Campus centre, iit, chicago
  • In the current European flag, there is a fixed number of stars. In the barcode however, new Member States of the EU can be added without space constraints.
  • Lille grand palais.It encompasses three areas: for conferences, exhibitions and Zenith Arena, a concert hall.
  • Taipei performing arts center. Proposed view by OMA
  • Proposed view for De Rotterdam. Completion by 2013
  • Entries were invited through a competition.He conceived the new library as a celebration of books.In the "digital age“ of 21st century also, people respond to books printed on paper.Wanted to make the library inviting to the public rather than stuffy. Was ambitious to redefine the Library as an information store, no longer exclusively dedicated to the book .Although unusual in shape, but the building's required functions dictate what it should look like. Brilliant show of his ideals of deconstructivism and expressionism.
  • Combination of like with like
  • Identification of five platforms each dedicated to a specific cluster. Each platform is a programmatic entity that is architecturally defined and equipped for maximum, dedicated performance. As each platform is designed for a different purpose, they are different in size, density and opacity.
  • The in-between spaces are like trading floors where librarians inform and stimulate.Interface between the different platforms is organized.
  • Inspite of thorough zoning, the various spaces do encroach upon each other with expansion and this is what differentiates SCPL from other information sources.
  • Return/check out
  • Kids’ corner
  • Microsoft auditorium with expandable back to accommodate 150 extra people for larger functions
  • Four floors of book stacks, connected by gentle ramps.
  • 75 % of the entire collection — is located on the Books Spiral. Collection exist in one continuous run.Avoids moving of the books into otherrooms or floors as the collection expands. Independent of stairs, escalators or elevators.
  • LIGHT POLLUTION REDUCTION---Exterior lighting is shielded. HEAT ISLAND REDUCTION---Providing shade to exterior spaces and a light colored Energy Star® roof that reflects heat and light lessens this effect.

SUSTAINABLE SITE DESIGN  LIGHT POLLUTION REDUCTION Exterior lighting is shielded  DROUGHT-TOLERANT LANDSCAPING Zero potable (drinking) water is used for landscaping due to rainwater collection system  HEAT ISLAND REDUCTION Providing shade to exterior spaces and a light colored Energy Star® roof that reflects heat and light lessens this effect.
    48. 48. Public opinions :  Awarded for innovation and engineering in its "structural solutions".  Usage of the building is double the predicted volume.  CRITICISMS- Many are not too fond of its unusual design.  Condemned by the Project for Public Spaces, which noted "if the library were a true 'community hub,' its most active areas would connect directly to the street.
    49. 49. Personal Opinion  Rigorous analysis of 1. The site 2. The city 3. Its existing structures 4. Culture of people.  Exploration of the capabilities of various architectural materials available.  Care for the technologies from the beginning of the project.  Proper use of warm and cool colors.  Uniquesness of design  Much to be learnt from.
