Architecture: Architect Rem Koolhaas (OMA) in The Simpsons: “..In The Simpsons last episode, Rem Koolhaas made a brief appearance where he is shown teaching to a group of students.
As Metropolitan Monk noted in Archinect.com, to appear in The Simpsons episode is the most unchallengeable proof that you have achieved Starchitect status.
The Scene, described by Archinect.com: “Rem Koolhaas is working – on a cruise ship notabene – as an instructor – probably in iconographic buildings – in KIDZONE ELITE. The ship, just like CCTV, is an emblem of closure. The architect is holding a couple of lego-bricks in his left hand while seeming to fix something to the back of the tower”.
With the excitement of seeing Koolhaas on television, which architect would you like to see on a future episode?” The price of fame? Or its value?
