Rem Koolhaas vs. Preservation?


Matt Chaban must have really wanted to catch the attention of preservationists lately when he wrote his column for the New York Observer titled, “Rem the Destroyer: Prada Patsy Plans Preservation’s Eviceration.” Well, he did catch my attention, but I was suspicious from the start. As a former practitioner of architecture, I am of course a fan of Rem Koolhaas, but this article wrongly portrays Mr. Koolhaas as an anti-preservationist purely to gain our attention. It was entertaining nonetheless. Here’s the link, judge for yourself. It’s a quick read. http://www.observer.com/2011/real-estate/rem-destroyer-prada-patsy-plans-preservations-eviceration
