Move over Louis Kahn...it's now time for Rem Koolhaas to get the My Architect treatment. The Dutch starchitech's son, Tomas, is currently cutting a feature-length film about his father's work on the CCTV headquarters building in Beijing, which promises to show the "softer side" of the elder Koolhaas' usually cool facade. The rough cut footage from the film, set against a moody alt Icelandic soundtrack, features the iconic Chinese broadcasting building at rarely seen angles and includes lots of shots of Koolhaas wandering the halls and gazing longingly into the distance à la Scarlett Johansson in Lost in Translation.
