Rarely has an architect caused as much sensation outside of the architecture community as REM Koolhaas. His outstanding creations - such as the Dutch Embassy in Berlin, the Seattle Library and the Casa da Musica concert hall in Porto - are working examples of the Dutchman's visionary theories about architecture and urban society. But Koolhaas' work is as much about ideas as it is about constructing buildings; he is equally celebrated as a writer and social commentator. For Koolhaas, what is essential is not to create individual masterpieces, but to provoke and excite through the wide range of his activities. REM Koolhaas: A Kind of Architect is an engaging portrait of a visionary man that takes US to the heart of his ideas. Directors Markus Heidingsfelder and Min Tesch have made a visually inventive, thought-provoking portrait of the architect, prompting REM Koolhaas to state, 'It's the only film about me that I have liked'.
