For conversations around the design water cooler. Rarely quiet for long, we just heard that Rem Koolhaas' latest book on current design is out. Called Content and designed like a magazine with numerous contributors and paid advertising inside, it is described by ID Magazine as "picking up where S,M,L,XL left off... A showcase of Koolhaas work from 1993 to 2003, mixed with essays, interviews, and visual hot flashes."
Tokion says, "Content launches a politically charged-attack on your eyeballs....The interview with Martha Stewart and a bootleg Prada ads make it totally... of the time."
Metropolis says, "Combining satire, expose, diary, and monograph, the book breeds a full range of reactions, from intense inspiration to utter disbelief."
