VITAMIN 002 (I/-)
If space-junk is the human debris that litters the universe, junk-space is the residue mankind leaves on the planet. The built (more about that later) product of modernization is not modern architecture but Junkspace. Junkspace is what remains after modernization has run its course or, more precisely, what coagulates while modernization is in progress, its fall-out. Modernization had a rational program: to share the blessings of science, universally. Junkspace is its apotheosis, or meltdown... Although its individual parts are the outcome of brilliant inventions, lucidly planned by human intelligence, boosted by infinite computation, their sum spells the end of Enlightenment, its resurrection as farce, a low-grade purgatory... Junkspace is the sum total of our current achievement; we have built more than all previous generations together, but somehow we do not register on the same scales. We do not leave pyramids.

Rem Koolhaas JUNKSPACE
Rem Koolhaas is the founder and director of the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA), a Rotterdam based firm concerned with contemporary architecture and urbanism. Since 1975 OMA has been involved in numerous projects ranging from private residences to large scale urban planning. As a result of several projects, notably the Villa dall'Ava overlooking the Eiffel Tower, Nexus Housing, and the planning of Euralille, a business and civic center hosting the major high speed train hub in the north of France, OMA has had an enormous impact on contemporary architecture and urban issues throughout the world. In the 21st century OMA is active throughout Europe and the United States including a series of museum projects. OMA has a branch in New York and an associated office in Hong Kong, OMA Asia. A new branch, AMO, has been established with a primary focus on research. AMO will collect forces from media, finance, technology and art to consult in the architectural thinking where strategy and concept have a higher importance than realisation.
