High wired


Last year everyone's favourite Dutch architect and theorist, Rem Koolhaas, won the RIBA Royal Gold Medal. Just 12 short months later, he has picked up an altogether different award.

Trendy Wired magazine, often a good guide to what will soon be 'cool' and what is definitely 'out', has announced that Koolhas has picked up one of its Wired Awards, a scheme designed to celebrate 'The People Changing Your Mind'. One wonders how many people out there can understand his thoughts, writings and publications sufficiently to have their minds changed.
