Select a text of criticism from Rem Kholhaas to present. This text should be of you own choosing; however, it should be an explicit text of criticism (not history or theory) and should not already be featured in the course syllabus.
While looking for an essay from Rem Khoolhaas, focus on essays that are about a singular thing—an art piece, a building, a person, etc. These are more likely to be proper pieces of criticism.
You should be prepared to discuss the relevance to the select text, both as example of the author’s critical oeuvre, as well as its historical and/or contemporary relevance.
