Rem Koolhaas (POSTPONED)
NOTICE : LECTURE CANCELLED
Date: Monday 27 January 2014
Venue: Postponed until later in year
Due to unforeseen circumstances Rem Koolhaas is unable to give his lecture at the AA on Monday 27th January. We apologise for the inconvenience and are working with Rem’s office to reschedule this event for later in the year.
Rem Koolhaas founded OMA in 1975 together with Elia and Zoe Zenghelis and Madelon Vriesendorp. He graduated from the AA in London and in 1978 published Delirious New York: A Retroactive Manifesto for Manhattan. In 1995, his book S,M,L,XL summarised the work of OMA in ‘a novel about architecture’. He heads the work of both OMA and AMO, the research branch of OMA, operating in areas beyond the realm of architecture such as media, politics, renewable energy and fashion. Koolhaas has won several international awards including the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2000 and the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement at the 2010 Venice Biennale. Koolhaas is a professor at Harvard University where he conducts the Project on the City.
This is an unticketed event but will be filled on a first-come first-served basis. The lecture will be relayed into the Rear Second Presentation Space and New Soft Room where more seating will be available.
All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
