A SMACKED BOTTON
Finally someone has taken Alain de Botton to task for his anticlimax of a book, The Architecture of Happiness.
That person was Rem Koolhaas.
Speaking at a British Council debate, Rem took objection to Alain's simplistic statements about architecture. And we all know Rem doesn't suffer fools gladly. He proved this by providing a very public dismissal of anything de Botton said. Never let it be said that Rem doesn't know how to make someone feel very small.
