OMA’s Rem Koolhaas was the latest guest star to appear in Matt Groening’s The Simpsons last week (pictured), joining Frank Lloyd Wright and Frank Gehry in the list of architects to be thus honoured
Koolhaas was gently sent up as an instructor on a cruise ship. At his class, ‘Lego Architecture with Rem Koolhaas’, the Dutch architect is shown building a Lego scale-model of OMA’s CCTV tower in front of his elite pupils. Next to the vegan buffet, Rem has his eyes closed, piecing together the rhomboid geometry of his tower. An insight into life inside the OMA office?
