How to confirm one's role as a starchitect? Appear in the Simpsons. In its last episode the Simpsons featured a split-second of Rem Koolhaas/CCTV. The architect, not seen sporting any Prada though, is instructing, eyes closed, a group of nine pupils. Next to him, a vegan buffet and 'Junior TED Talks' - anyone recognizing Bjarke Ingels up there?
The scene: Rem Koolhaas is working - on a cruise ship notabene - as an instructor - probably in iconographic buildings - in KIDZONE ELITE. The ship, just like CCTV, is an emblem of closure. The architect, so can be seen in the above image, has a half-bald hairstyle and is holding a couple of lego-bricks in his left hand while seeming to fix something to the back of the building. A CCTV made out of lego-bricks is also structurally different than the original. Lisa seems to have her eyes fixed on the back of the architects' head. The appearance of Rem Koolhaas is of no further importance for the rest of the storyline of this episode.
As seen in The Simpons, Season 23, Episode 19. April 29, 2012.
