"A Audacia e a visao de Rem Koolhaas. Seguindo o lucrativo ejemplo dos grandes mestres franco suiços, Koolhaas produziu varios libros extremamente populares, incluindo dos que sao verdaderas piedras de toque para os mais jovens: Nova Iorque Delirante. O último volumen de colas, Project Japan: Metabolism Talks tem a palabra o Metabolism. Escrito en coautoria com Hans Ulrich Obrist, presta homenagem as metabolistas, o arquitetos japneses de mediados do siglo XX que estiveram na dianteira de reconstrucçao do país após da Segunda Guerra."— Diario de Noticias, Lisbon, Portugal
Project Japan enthält eine Vielzahl nie gesehener Bilder. Sie erzählen Japans Geschichte des 20. Jahrhunderts durch seine Architektur, von der Tabula rasa der kolonisierten Mandschurei in den 1930er Jahren bis hin zum zerstörten Japan nach dem Krieg... Das Ergebnis ist eine lebendige Dokumentation des letzten Mals, als Architektur eine öffentliche und keine private Angelegenheit war.”— Stadtzauber, Köln, Alemania
„So ergibt sich ein Buch mit Enzyklopädie-Charakter, das jedoch nicht nur Überblick gibt und schnelles Nachschlagen ermöglicht, sondern sich größtenteils auch ziemlich spannend liest – letzteres vielleicht auch aufgrund des quasi persönlichen Zugangs zur Materie durch das Interview-Format. Die verschiedenen Bestandteile und Medien ergänzen sich vortrefflich.”, Berlin, Alemania
“Chamaram-lhe a primeira vanguardia nao occidental e o último momento de optimismo. A historia do Metabolism, un movimiento de arquitectos japoneses da década dos 60’, é agora recuperada num livro assinado por una dupla de luxo... Os autores sao figuras de peso. Koolhaas, o celebrado autor de Casa de Música, venceu o Pritzker de 2000. Obrist, responsabel pela Serpentine Gallery, em Londres... Garças a Project Japan Metabolis Talks, os seus sonhos sairam do esquecimiento."— Sol, Lisbon, Portugal
"Project oral history of the movement by the architect Rem Koolhaas and curator Hans Ulrich Obrist. Seeking to understand Metabolism as the last manifestation of the nation-building avant-garde before the onset of neoliberalism, Koolhaas and Obrist began their project in 2005, eventually interviewing all the groups major exponents except Tange, who died in March of that year (joined by Kurakawa in 2007 and Kitutake in late 2011). In true Metabolist fashion, these interviews, nine altogether, constitute a structural spine though the book’s 700-odd pages, from which extend numerous illustrations, capsules of supporting information and commentary by contemporary peers such as Hajime Yatsuka and Toyo Ito, and passages of historical analysis that reframe the group’s ideas and activates from a critical perspective."— Art & Australia, Paddington, Australia
"Parsemé d’indices, de rendez-vous dans des lobbys d’aéroports, de moments sincèrement émouvants et d’humour subtil, l’ouvrage est à la fois un récit d’investigation divertissant et un relevé encyclopédique intemporel. Si la maturité du sujet a permis à cet ouvrage de prendre corps, c’est le balancement entre objectivité révérente et subjectivité passionnée qui le met en mouvement."— A+ Architecture, Bélgica
“TASCHEN has recently published this rather fine looking volume... Co-written, edited and researched by the Dutch (st)architect Rem Koolhaas, it’s an in-depth review and assessment of the Japanese architectural movement called Metabolism, often considered to be the first non-western avant-garde movement of any significance. Koolhaas’s book looks fascinating and with over 700 pages of beautiful drawings, stunning photos of concrete and bonkers ideas, something I would definitely like to own."—, Barcelona, España
„Fotografisches Archivmaterial gepaart mit historischen Quellen und Zeitzeugendarstellungen fügen sich zu einem einzigartigen Dokument unserer global verstrickten Architekturgeschichte.”— architektur aktuell, Wien, Austria
"Despite being co-authored with Serpentine Gallery co-director Hans Ulrich Obrist, and consisting mostly of interviews, one of the most striking aspects of Project Japan is that it is perhaps the closest we have come to consistently hearing Koolhaas’ own voice for a while. Presenting an oral history alongside reproductions of key Metabolist texts, Project Japan is a serious historical artifact and the most extensive and detailed account of the movement produced to date."— Architecture Today, London, Reino Unido
"In a move that he clearly enjoyed, Rem Koolhaas along with Hans Ulrich Obrist re-introduce the Metabolists in an era that consecrates SANAA and their followers as the new Japanese paradigm for global architecture. It is indeed difficult to find two visions of architecture that different and the fact that they were produced in the same country makes this opposition even more visible. The 700-page book Project Japan can therefore be considered, not as a retroactive manifesto (that was the self-definition of Koolhaas’ Delirious New York), but rather as a rehabilitative archive. It is a document that illustrates the coherency of a historical movement created as both individual and collective work in a way that cannot be observed in any way nowadays. Through interviews with almost all the actors of this movement -Kurokawa and Kitutake died since then-, R.Koolhaas and H.U.Obrist explore as much the origins of this ambition (they find them in Kenzo Tange’s experience of the war in China and its large territories) as the globalization of the movement which saw the Metabolists proposed many projects in the Middle East. The photographs of Charlie Koolhaas of several buildings built in the 60′s in their current state also bring an interesting comparison with the original documents and the endurance (or not) of those building to time. Beyond the subjective reading of the two Europeans, this book is mostly a very valuable archive of documents created by the Metabolists, many of them which are probably not findable in already published books. In this regard, the Repertoire of Metabolism is particularly rich through its succinctness. In thirty four pages, we access to a visual inventory of the various architectural inventions or appropriations that the Metabolists have been developing through their work."—
