Après avoir vécu les premières années de son adolescence en Indonésie, Rem Koolhaas (Rotterdam, 1944) déménagea à Amsterdam où il s'employa comme scénariste de cinéma et journaliste. Peu après, il va à Londres afin d'y étudier à l'Architectural Association. Un voyage à New York lui inspire son livre " Delirious New York, a Retroactive Manifesto for Manhattan ". En 1975, il passe de la théorie à la pratique architecturale en fondant, conjointement à Elia et Zoe Zenghelis ainsi que Mandelon Vriesendorp, l'étude Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA), dont les projets lui ont valu nombre de récompenses parmi lesquelles le prestigieux prix Pritzker 2000. Les musées Guggenheim de Las Vegas figurent parmi ses créations les plus spectaculaires de ces dernières années.
