Rem Koolhaas is coming to Beirut - it's a bit late, but better late than never.
Rem Koolhaas will be hosted on AUB premises. Mistake #1. hence, i will be ''Not Attending"
An architect like RK should not be a lecture-rat. We have read your books, stalked your recipes, printed your photos and licked them, argued pro your projects, so i am pretty sure listening to you dictate them would be astonishingly redundant - but so is jerking off .. and we still do that from time to time. .
Give him an apartment in Beirut for a month, but not a car - and may it be an open brief..where he can produce nothing, if nothing needs anything as a response - and everything - if everything is the way to go - i would like to see what game he would choose to play here - not hear about games he played elsewhere - because here is not there - and a lecture about there will do nothing more than ElCroquis can do, or a podcast.. or yea ..
..and if you go, say hi.
