Item description for Serpentine Galle 24-hour Interview Marathon: London by Rem Koolhaas...

Every year the Serpentine Gallery, located
in the heart of Hyde Park in central London,
invites an internationally renowned architect
or designer to design a temporary pavilion in
their grounds for the summer.
In 2006, a 24-Hour Interview Marathon
event took place in the Pavilion designed by
architect Rem Koolhaas.
It featured over 60 world-renowned artists,
architects, writers, designers and theorists,
among them David Adjaye, Damien Hirst,
Gilbert and George, Hussein Chalayan and
Doris Lessing, as well as the Director of the
Serpentine Gallery, Julia Peyton-Jones.
The interviews were hosted by the architect
of the Pavilion, Rem Koolhaas, and the
Serpentine Gallery s Co-director of Exhibitions
and Programmes, Hans Ulrich Obrist.
Small and with a soft-cover in the format
of a traditional flip-book , the book is a
lively representation of the now legendary
24-hour marathon of interviews, held with
some of the greatest names in international
contemporary culture.
A highly visual and energetic book for
its small size, it features over 150 colour
and black and white illustrations and
photographs interspersed with text extracts
from the interviews, and moves along in
chronological order of the 24 hours.
Koolhaas is one of the latest additions to
an illustrious list of architects which include
Zaha Hadid (2000), Daniel Libeskind (2001),
Oscar Niemeyer (2003), lvaro Siza and
Eduardo Souto de Moura with Cecil Balmond
(2005), and Olafur Eliasson (2007).
