Note "Architects, contrary to most artists, work by definition from the core of society. Rem Koolhaas is one of the few architects who demonstrates the ability to do so while maintaining a critical distance. Does his strategy contain a hint for artists on how to create significant art in a world where everything seems bound for insignificance? Writer Edzard Mik visited the CCTV building in Beijing, designed by Rem Koolhaas's OMA, and wrote a lyrical 'road essay' about Koolhaas, Beijing and on being an artist in the twenty-first century"--Jacket
