Tomas Koolhaas, son of notorious Rem Koolhaas is documenting his father’s working methods, philosophy and internal landscape, from a never seen perspective of intimacy and immediacy. This perspective allows the viewer to understand his ideas in a way they couldn’t otherwise, having the feel of being „inside” his head. These ideas are not merely explained as intellectual concepts but the viewer also sees these ideas in practice – the reality on the ground. They see how these ideas come to fruition in concrete and metal. The film shows how these structures – some massive and some small-dotted all around the globe – affect every aspect of the lives of the people that build them, use them and live inside them.
