Résumé
Résumé : 

Cet ouvrage rassemble 150 textes (entretiens, essais, articles, lettres, introductions, critiques) de Rem Koolhaas, architecte qui contribue à l'analyse et à la théorie de l'architecture depuis 50 ans. (D'après la 4e de couv.)

The activities of Rem Koolhaas and his numerous collaborators have been widely discussed, even before the foundation of the Office for Metropolitan Architecture in 1975. The work of OMA, including Koolhaas's written oeuvre, is at the root of an important part of the Western discourse on architecture from the past half century. The book compiles about 150 texts - interviews, essays, articles, reviews, letters, introductions, polemics, appraisals, and competition reports - that in many cases have been translated for the first time. As a reader covering the work of OMA/Rem Koolhaas from Delirious New York to S,M,L,XL, it provides a fresh and critical view on one of the most complex architectural oeuvres of recent times. At the same time, the book presents an account of the debates on architecture and the city that remain significative today (editor)
