Rem Koolhaas: A kind of Architect • Documentary, 01-Jan-2008
Please note: This classic documentary is only available in standard definition.
An engaging and visually inventive profile of the architect, beginning with his family background and early influences.
Through interviews with fellow architects, academics and with Koolhaas himself, we see the evolution of his architecture through the development of projects such as the Casa da Musica in Porto and the unique creative designs for houses and living spaces.
The film culminates with the construction of the landmark CC-TV building in Beijing– a very unusual skyscraper built as a loop in space held in place by a “collar” to prevent it from falling.
