41 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in 4 languages and held by 986 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This massive book is a novel about architecture. Conceived by Rem Koolhaas ... and Bruce Mau ... as a free-fall in the space of the typographic imagination, the book's title ... is also its framework: projects and essays are arranged according to scale. The book combines essays, manifestoes, diaries, fairy tales, travelogues, a cycle of meditations on the contemporary city, with work produced by Koolhaas's Office for Metropolitan Architecture over the past twenty years. This accumulation of words and images illuminates the condition of architecture today, its splendors and miseries, exploring and revealing the corrosive impact of politics, context, the economy, globalization, the world"--Back cover

Considering Rem Koolhaas and the Office for Metropolitan Architecture : what is OMA by Rem Koolhaas( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is OMA provides a clear insight into the role and significance of Rem Koolhaas and the Office for Metropolitan Architecture. Authors of international repute from beyond the province of architecture examine OMA's work in the light of social and economic developments. The many facets of Koolhaas come under review: his take on architectural theory and the conceptual apparatus he employs, his vision of urbanism and the contemporary city, the designs put into practice by OMA and the research projects of the AMO think tank, which exist outside the immediate boundaries of architecture. This book paints an intelligent picture of the sheer range of OMA's architecture and of Koolhaas's seminal role in the architectural world."--Jacket
Dutch embassy in Berlin by OMA/Rem Koolhaas by Rem Koolhaas( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Dutch Embassy in Berlin by OMA/Rem Koolhaas is one more example of contemporary architecture by Rem Koolhaas and the Office for Metropolitan Architecture. After the Kunsthal in Rotterdam and the Congrexpo in Lille, the Berlin embassy once again attests to the design talent of this internationally renowned architect." "This publication provides an in-depth analysis of the building's design and its realisation. It includes line drawings by OMA illustrating the design's points of departure. German photographer Candida Hofer presents the embassy building in a series of 40 photographs giving her personal perspective on its exterior and interior. Parisian architecture critic Francois Chaslir analyses the building in an essay."--Jacket

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This accordion-fold booklet contains a series of analytical views of the Arabian coast of the Persian Gulf by AMO-OMA and colleagues from the American University of Sharjah, UAE. In a "futurized present," these views seek to depict the current and unprecedented state of the region, which invites one to contemplate the design of a new version of urbanism. Like a pristine and untouched canvas, the sand and sea of the Persian Gulf coast constitute a tabula rasa, waiting to receive the imprint of new identities
