Rem Koolhaas : conversations with students by Rem Koolhaas ( Book )
4 editions published between 1991 and 1998 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book presents a lecture and seminar given by architect Rem Koolhaas at the Rice University School of Architecture. In this compact volume, Koolhaas addresses the urban and architectural implications of extra-large construction, using as examples three of the Office of Metropolitan Architecture (OMA)'s important large-scale projects: the Zeebrugge Ferry Terminal in Belgium, the Tres Grande Bibliotheque in Paris, and the Karlsruhe Center for Art and Media Technology in Germany. Tackling questions about the difficult state of urbanism and modernism in contemporary Europe, America, and Asia, this volume forms a concise and coherent explanation of the theories and polemics of Koolhaas and OMA. Thie book serves as an inexpensive alternative and companion to Koolhaas's S,M,L,XL." -- Publisher's description

Requiem for the city at the end of the Millennium by Sanford Kwinter ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this small, but sharply-pointed book, renowned theorist Sanford Kwinter addresses the sometimes subtle, sometimes brutal transformations that characterized the modernization processes set into motion at the turn of the millennium. From the strange appearance of the 'Trojan Horse' that was the Centre Pompidou which served as the harbinger and template of the new idea of "Europe", through the dot.com bubble of the late 1990s, to the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers in New York, a new world came into being that design thinking has yet to fully take into account. The City is here seen not only as the last frontier of human history currently under threat of total eclipse, it is the indomitable form of collective experience upon which one can count as assuredly as one can on death and taxes. Requiem, to quote from Thomas Daniell's introduction, is first and foremost redemptive: "Kwinter's most negative assessments of the city are driven by a deep commitment to its sublime potentials--a desire to sacralize the most profane and fecund of human creations".--P. [4] de la couv
