Rem Koolhaas wins Biennale Lifetime Achievement Award

Dutch architect Rem Kookhaas was honoured with the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement award at the 12th Venice Biennale. The decision was made by the Board of the international architecture exhibition upon the recommendation of this year’s Director, Kazuyo Sejima.

“Rem Koolhaas has expanded the possibilities of architecture. He has focused on the exchanges between people in space. He creates buildings that bring people together and in this way forms ambitious goals for architecture. His influence on the world has come well beyond architecture. People from very diverse fields feel a great freedom from his work.“

Named in 2008 as one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine, Koolhaas is a founder of the Office of Metropolitan Architect and is known worldwide for his influential writings and buildings, including the Netherlands Dance Theatre at The Hague, The Seattle Public Library, the Kunsthal in Rotterdam and the Grand Palais of Euraillle and Lille. Among his many honours, Koolhaas won the Pritzker Prize in Architecture in 2000.
