Rem Koolhaas | Portfolio
Rem Koolhaas is one of the most accomplished Dutch architects of all time. His designs for some of the most prominent buildings in Holland achieved international acclaim. Koolhaas has written several books that cemented his reputation as one of the most important architectural theorists of this generation. Among countless awards, he received the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2000 and was named one of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people in 2008.
Although he began his career as a journalist, Koolhaas later decided to follow in his grandfather Dirk Roosenburg’s footsteps into architecture and trained at the Architectural Association School in London. He earned a scholarship to study in the United States, and it was here that Manhattan’s chaotic urban lifestyle was the catalyst for his first book: ‘Delirious New York’.
