Metabolism

 

When they were documenting Metabolism for their book, Rem Koolhaas and Hans Ulrich Obrist described it as “the first non-Western avant-garde movement in architecture.” Others have pointed to it as the vital pre-condition for contemporary architecture. Academic Penny Lewis ingeniously asserts the importance of a short-lived architectural movement and shows what can happen when human creativity and investment coincide.
