Amour propre

Recalling his student days, in an interview in this autumn's Tate Magazine, Rem Koolhaas says: 'When I came to the Architectural Association in 1968, there was a dining room with waitresses and a fireplace. It was an incredible scene, because the most moribund elements of English culture were being used as props against which the avantgarde could perform its tricks.' And Rem also has some thoughts on his old mentor Cedric Price: 'He was a sceptic torturing a conservative discipline. It is fascinating that he is making such an incredible comeback. Maybe in some way he represents our guilty conscience.'
