In Junkspace (2001), architect Rem Koolhaas itemised in delirious detail how our cities are being overwhelmed. His celebrated jeremiad is here updated and twinned with Running Room, a fresh response from architectural critic Hal Foster.

‘The manifesto is a modernist mode, one that looks to the future… Junkspace makes no such claim: “Architecture disappeared in the twentieth century,” states Koolhaas matter-of-factly. Junkspace does a harder thing: it “foretells” the present, which is to say that it calls on us to recognize what is already everywhere around us.’ - Hal Foster

‘Junkspace is the new flamboyant, flexible, forgettable face of architecture, rendered by Rem Koolhaas in a visceral and rampantly analytical essay.’
- Office for Metropolitan Architecture

‘Junkspace is the most important piece of writing on architecture of the 21st Century.’
- Icon

‘Rem Koolhaas’s luminescent essay Junkspace decries the mall as the slagheap of America [and] illuminates the dark underbelly of the kind of advanced capitalism living in the mall.’
- Columbia Review Magazine
