Join us at the Soane Museum on Wednesday 6 November for the next talk in the second series of Reputations Live, presenting architecture’s biggest influencers and agitators from the AR’s Reputations series
The second series of Reputations Live will once again explore the most prominent, prolific and notorious architects from Sir John Soane’s day to our present age, as featured in the AR’s Reputations series, started in 2011.
In the third talk of the programme, Jack Self, architect and editor-in-chief of Real Review, presents Rem Koolhaas. Koolhaas’s heroic trajectory provides an impossible formula for success, combining unquestioned genius with a waning culture of willigness to embrace the figure of the starchitect.
