Another Rem

Rem Koolhaas, unbuilt proposal for the Parc de la Villette in Paris.

This project reminds us that there was once a Rem Koolhaas quite different from the corporate starchitect we see today. His work in the 70s and early 80s was radical and innovative, but did not get built. Often he didn’t seem to care—it was the ideas that mattered. However, his scheme for the Parc de la Villette begs to have been built and we can only regret that it never was. (via Lebbeus Woods)
