Coen was writing today about the new design of the Gazprom Headquarters in St. Petersburg. Some weeks ago The Office for Metropolitan Architecture was selected to be one of the six architects on the short-list for the design. The Office was founded in 1975 by Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas.
I usually like Koolhaas design. But why would he want to build a giant (more than 300 m. high) game of Tetris on the Neva?
