La belleza es como un ciervo huidizo. Aparece por casualidad y no cuando lo planeamos.

Según su teoría, una ciudad no se puede planificar, sino que esta surge simplemente.

Remment Lucas Koolhaas, nace en Róterdam en 1944 y es galardonado con el Pritzker por sus proyectos.

Pasa cuatro años de su niñez en Indonesia, donde su padre Anton Koolhaas, un escritor, crítico cinematográfico y director de una escuela de cine de Holanda, es invitado a dirigir una nueva institución cultural.

Aunque comienza su carrera como periodista, Koolhaas decide seguir los pasos de su abuelo Dirk Roosenburg y estudia arquitectura en la Architectural Association School de Londres donde se gradua en 1972.

Consigue una beca para estudiar en Estados Unidos, y es la caótica vida urbana de Manhattan la que le impulsa a escribir su primer libro, Delirio de Nueva York.

Koolhaas funda la Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) en Londres en 1975, junto con Madelon Vriesendorp, y Elia y Zoe Zenghelis, enfatizando de inmediato los aspectos programáticos de la arquitectura, en lugar de los formales o estrictamente morfológicos (Van Dijk).

1978 La fama de Rem Koolhass comienza con la publicación del ensayo Delirious New York (1978), donde trata de explicar teóricamente cómo ha podido suceder que una ciudad como Nueva York, para nada planificada, se haya convertido en la quintaesencia de lo contemporáneo.

El autor sugiere que el desarrollo arquitectónico de Manhattan es un proceso orgánico creado a través de una variedad de fuerzas culturales.

De esta manera, Nueva York y otras grandes ciudades funcionan como metáfora de la experiencia contemporánea.

1978 la empresa consigue su primera gran oportunidad cuando gana el concurso para diseñar una ampliación del Binnenhof, el edificio del parlamento holandés de La Haya en colaboración de Zaha Hadid, que le abre el camino a varios proyectos estatales.

Aunque la ampliación nunca se llevó a cabo, el diseño impulsó a Koolhaas y su equipo a la fama.

1981-1988 realiza el plan urbano para el distrito residencial IJ-Plein en Ámsterdam, con 1375 apartamentos, un centro social y una escuela.

1982 proyecto del Parc de la Villette (55 hectáreas al norte de París), demuestra su programa artístico, basado en la necesidad de combinar la inestabilidad programática con la especificidad arquitectónica, no consigue el proyecto pero el proyecto le hace famoso

1991 el complejo residencial de alta densidad Nexus Housing en Fukuoka, Japón, compuesto por 24 casas individuales, cada una de tres plantas

1987 El Lucent Danstheater de la Haya

Es uno de los primeros logros de la OMA se convierte en el hogar de la compañía de danza y teatro Nederlands Dans Theater, internacionalmente famosa.

El diseño se completa en 1987 y es un gran triunfo.

Esta formado por un vestíbulo común, un auditorio, una sala de ensayos y un bar flotante.

El edificio permanece en pie hasta el 2015

1988-1994 en el plan maestro de Euro-Lille

 Reinterpreta el centro de la ciudad francesa, desde la calle central hasta las tiendas, hasta el Palacio de Congresos (Congrexpo).

1992 El Kunsthal

El prestigioso museo de arte de Róterdam, es otro de los impresionantes diseños de Koolhaas.

El espacio está diseñado como una caja cuadrada, con suelos inclinados en espiral que llevan a los visitantes por las diferentes exposiciones.

El edificio está repleto de detalles fascinantes, como la galería principal, que parece flotar por encima de la calle. Materiales inesperados como el plástico corrugado transparente, el hormigón al descubierto y el acero galvanizado aportan un toque especial a la estética industrial del edificio.

De Rotterdam 2013

Rotterdam, The netherlands – May 22, 2014: Panorama taken from the De Monchy square at the southside of the Kop van Zuid quarter in Rotterdam. The obsolete warehouse Pakhuismeesteren is surrounded by modern buildings like, from left, tower New Orleans with part of the World Port Center in its background, the huge building De Rotterdam, KPN office Belvédère, the Maastoren and the Luxor Theater.

Los rascacielos interconectados a orillas del agua, llamados en su conjunto De Rotterdam, siguen siendo un tema de conversación sobre la arquitectura de la ciudad desde que se completó su construcción en 2013.

Rotterdam, The Netherlands – April 15, 2014: “The Rotterdam” in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Designed by Rem Koolhaas and finished in 2014

Koolhaas enfoca la elaboración del diseño desde la perspectiva de que las torres serían vistas principalmente desde vehículos en movimiento.

Rotterdam, Netherlands – August 27, 2016: The Ersamus Bridge with dynamic highrise buildings, designed by Rem Koolhaas on the Wilhelminapier, the city peninsula between Rijnhaven and Nieuwe Maas (a redeveloped former industrial area with new high-rise buildings). Water taxi passing by.

El arquitecto jugó con la ilusión óptica de que los edificios se fusionan y se separan mientras la gente pasa delante de ellos.

Rotterdam, The Netherlands – April 17, 2014: The building De Rotterdam rises with 44 floors high over the corners of 2 old warehouses on the Kop van Zuid in Rotterdam. This huge building holds a hotel, offices and apartments and was designed by Rem Koolhaas of OMA Architects and was delivered in 2013.

El edificio más grande de los Países Bajos no destaca solo por su altura (150 metros), sino también por su enorme superficie de 160.000 m2.

Modern Architecture in Rotterdam

Esta imponente edificación le confiere al puerto de Róterdam un aspecto moderno.

El objetivo del arquitecto Rem Koolhaas es crear un edificio polivalente en el que poder trabajar, vivir, comprar, relajarse y salir a comer.

Por este motivo, Rem Koolhaas bautizó su obra la ciudad vertical. 

1996 son numerosos los proyectos para grandes edificios, como se evidencia en el volumen S, M, L, XL  donde recopila todos los proyectos de OMA, con escritos teóricos sobre las problemáticas de la planificación urbana.

1998 Maison à Bordeaux.

Fusión de funcionalidad y estética, tres casas, una encima de la otra.

Mejor diseño del año para la revista Time.

Una de las obras de Rem Koolhaas más excepcionales la idea para un cliente que se queda postrado en una silla de ruedas tras sufrir un accidente de tráfico.

Este busca un edificio que este adaptado a sus necesidades.

El resultado es una casa que aúna funcionalidad y estética y está equipada con una serie de elementos técnicos como una plataforma elevadora para llegar a todas las plantas del edificio.

En el proyecto, la parte inferior es similar a una cueva, para la vida más íntima de la familia: la casa superior se divide en espacios para la pareja y espacios para sus hijos. 

En el medio hay una estancia de vidrio casi invisible, mitad dentro y mitad fuera (…) que en realidad es una plataforma de movimiento vertical que funciona como un ascensor y permite al hombre acceder a todos los niveles (…) una pared del ascensor es una superficie continua de estantes que permite el acceso a los libros para su trabajo.

2000 se adjudica el Premio Pritzker

 Es definido como un arquitecto en sintonía con el futuro (…) un profeta de una nueva arquitectura moderna, razón por la que no sorprende que el Museum of Modern Art haya dedicado ya dos exposiciones a sus obras.

El jurado del Pritzker también considera de suma importancia el corpus de ensayos y de textos divulgativos de Koolhaas, hasta el punto de que la cita del premio dice que es famoso por sus libros, sus planes y sus exploraciones académicas tanto como por sus edificios.

City-workers clear cut tree branches in Beijing’s Central Business District (CBD), 12 December 2007, beside the new headquarters of state broadcaster China Central Television (CCTV). Designed by Rem Koolhaas’s Office of Metropolitan Architecture (OMA), the CCTV Tower is one of the most striking additions to Beijing’s skyline, dotted with futuristic monuments to China’s rapid growth and new-found power and influence in the world. The complexity of the 234-metre (772-feet) tall structure locked together by an outer skeleton of 10,000 steel beams is heightened by the fact that Beijing is in an earthquake zone.
