At the 12th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice, Rem Koolhaas was awarded the Golden Lion for lifetime achievement by Biennale director Kazuyo Sejima. Koolhaas commented: "It is a really wonderful moment to get a lifetime achievement award in the middle of my career. I will certainly treat it as an encouragement for further action. Thank you."
“Rem Koolhaas has expanded the possibilities of architecture,” says Sejima. “He creates buildings that bring people together and in this way forms ambitious goals for architecture. His influence on the world has come well beyond architecture. People from very diverse fields feel a great freedom from his work.”
