REM follows its titular architect around the world, visiting his projects and investigating their human impact. Aware of his special perspective on the film's subject, Tomas didn't want the film to be a teary biopic or heady architectural salvo, but something more impressionistic and accessible, appealing to emotions over intellectualism. We speak about managing family relationships in creative work, his influences as a filmmaker, and film's role in architectural media at large.</p><p>Listen to&nbsp;<a href="http://archinect.com/news/tag/670405/one-to-one" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">One-to-One</a>&nbsp;#39 with&nbsp;<strong>Tomas Koolhaas</strong>:</p><ul><li><strong>iTunes</strong>:&nbsp;<a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/neil-denari/id1057340260?i=356797877" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Click here to listen&nbsp;and subscribe to the new&nbsp;"Archinect Sessions One-to-One" podcast</a></li><li><strong>SoundCloud</strong>:&nbsp;<a href="http://soundcloud.com/archinect" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">click here to follow Archinect</a></li><li><strong>RSS</strong>: subscribe with any of your favorite podcasting apps via our RSS feed:&nbsp;<a href="http://onetoone.libsyn.com/rss" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">http://onetoone.libsyn.com/rss</a></li><li><strong>Download</strong>:&nbsp;<a href="http://traffic.libsyn.com/onetoone/One_To_One_Episode_39_Tomas_Koolhaas.mp3" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">this episode</a></li></ul><p></p><p><strong>Shownotes</strong>:</p><p><em>REM</em>'s trailer:</p><p></p><p>Screenshots from REM&nbsp;&darr;</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/f9/f9ri9xg2onn0uvb3.jpg"></p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/dy/dyicw1xlcirfox0w.jpg"></p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/lm/lmvb5szerw1wgh7w.jpg"></p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/dn/dn8aruzp88xntds1.jpg"></p><p>Film...</p> http://archinect.com/news/article/149963381/watch-the-official-trailer-for-tomas-koolhaas-upcoming-documentary-rem Watch the official trailer for Tomas Koolhaas' upcoming documentary, 'REM' Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2016-08-15T17:48:00-04:00 >2016-09-29T13:47:20-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/rs/rsju7y5lro89u8gv.jpg" width="650" height="363" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Perhaps no one is better situated to forge a behind-the-scenes look at Rem Koolhaas than his son, Tomas Koolhaas.
