Conceived by Rem Koolhaas -- author of 'Delirious New York' -- and Bruce Mau -- designer of Zone -- as a free-fall in the space of the typographic imagination, the book's title, 'Small, Medium, Large, Extra-Large,' is also its framework: projects and essays are arranged accoding to scale. The book combines essays, manifestoes, diaries, fairy tales, travelogues, a cycle of meditations on the contemporary city, with work produced by Koolhaas's Office for Metropolitan Architecture over the past twenty years. This accumulation of words and images illuminates the condition of architecture today -- its splendors and miseries -- exploring and revealing the corrosive impact of politics, context, the economy, globalization -- the world."

Book Description Monacelli Press December 1995, 1995. Hardcover. Book Condition: Used - Very Good. 'S, M, L, XL' presents a selection of the remarkable visionary design work produced by the Dutch firm Office for Metropolitan Architecture (O.M.A.) and its acclaimed founder, Rem Koolhaas, in its first twenty years, along with a variety of insightful, often poetic writings. The inventive collaboration between Koolhaas and designer Bruce Mau is a graphic overture that weaves together architectural projects, photos and sketches, diary excerpts, personal travelogues, fairy tales, and fables, as well as critical essays on contemporary architecture and society. The book's title is also its framework: projects and essays are arranged according to scale. While Small and Medium address issues ranging from the domestic to the public, Large focuses on what Koolhaas calls 'the architecture of Bigness.' Extra-Large features projects at the urban scale, along with the important essay 'What Ever Happened to Urbanism?' and other studies of the contemporary city. Running throughout the book is a 'dictionary' of an adventurous new Koolhaasian language -- definitions, commentaries, and quotes from hundreds of literary, cultural, artistic, and architectural sources. 1995 First edition.
