As Koolhaas himself has acknowledged, this approach had already been evident in the Japanese Metabolist Movement in the s and early s.

Seattle Central Library Seattle, USA, designed by OMA A key aspect of architecture that Koolhaas interrogates is the " Program ": with the rise of modernism in the 20th century the "Program" became the key theme of architectural design. The notion of the Program involves "an act to edit function and human activities" as the pretext of architectural design: epitomised in the maxim form follows function , first popularised by architect Louis Sullivan at the beginning of the 20th century.

The notion was first questioned in Delirious New York, in his analysis of high-rise architecture in Manhattan. An early design method derived from such thinking was "cross-programming", introducing unexpected functions in room programmes, such as running tracks in skyscrapers.

More recently, Koolhaas unsuccessfully proposed the inclusion of hospital units for the homeless into the Seattle Public Library project The layout of the huge book transformed architectural publishing, and such books—full-colour graphics and dense texts—have since become common. Ostensibly, S,M,L,XL gives a record of the actual implementation of "Manhattanism" throughout the various mostly unrealized projects and texts OMA had generated up to that time.

The part lexicon-type layout with a marginal "dictionary" composed by Jennifer Sigler , who also edited the book spawned a number of concepts that have become common in later architectural theory, in particular "Bigness": 'old' architectural principles composition, scale, proportion, detail no longer apply when a building acquires Bigness.

This was demonstrated in OMA's scheme for the development of " Euralille " —94 , a new centre for the city of Lille in France, a city returned to prominence by its position on the new rail route from Paris to London via the Channel Tunnel. OMA sited a train station, two centres for commerce and trade, an urban park, and 'Congrexpo' Lille Grand Palais , a contemporary " Grand Palais " with a large concert hall, three auditoria and an exhibition space with Cecil Balmond.

That is the story of the city. The city is no longer.

We can leave the theatre now Koolhaas's next landmark publications were a product of his position as professor at Harvard University , in the Design school 's "Project on the City"; firstly the page Mutations, [18] followed by The Harvard Design School Guide to Shopping [19] and The Great Leap Forward The authors also examine the influence of shopping habits and the recent rapid growth of cities in China.

Critics of the books have criticised Koolhaas for being cynical — as if Western capitalism and globalization demolish all cultural identity — highlighted in the notion expounded in the books that "In the end, there will be little else for us to do but shop". While this strategy might be self- conscious, it does little to change the effect. Particularly at stake is the place and space of visual artistic practice.

Content is full of artistic appropriations. An unmarked double-page spread, for example, features a suspiciously Jenny Holzer-like neon sign that bears the slogan: The setting is a fashion parade, where a darkened audience is enraptured by a central model on the catwalk, whose figure emits a whitened light and whose digitally doubled image acts as a halo.

Art and theory are present, apparently, but they just happen to be in the service of the commercial interests of companies such as Gucci and Prada. As history is raided for such pithy headlines, both context and content are emptied of meaning. In Critique of Cynical Reason , philosopher Peter Sloterdijk describes this kind of cynicism as the defining feature of the contemporary world.

The grid design of Manhattan, he suggested, created a space that was both ordered and fluid, and that symbolised the city itself: a space of contradiction.

Recently Koolhaas has expanded this celebration of congestion to encompass the congested state of consumer culture. Designing for fashion companies and corporations, he has employed an eclectic mix of art, architecture, design and commerce, claiming to use the mechanisms of consumerism to expose its excess. Content extends this exploration of the commercial market by conflating fashion, design, art and architecture in the one publication.Help Center Find new research papers in: Architecture, fashion, and theatre[ edit ] Second Stage Theatre , New York, USA With his Prada projects, Koolhaas ventured into providing architecture for the fleeting world of fashion and with celebrity-studded cachet: not unlike Garnier's Opera, the central space of Koolhaas' Beverly Hills Prada store is occupied by a massive central staircase, ostensibly displaying select wares, but mainly the shoppers themselves.

AMO[ edit ] In the late nineties, while working on the design for the new headquarters for Universal currently Vivendi , OMA was first exposed to the full pace of change that engulfed the world of media and with it the increasing importance of the virtual domain.
