"Koolhaas, Delirious in Beijing" - New York Times

Dezeen Wire: Nicolai Ouroussoff, outgoing architecture critic at the New York Times, reviews the Central China Television building in Beijing by Rem Koolhaas of OMA: "The forms are a reworking of classical perspective; the irregular structure is an attack on Modernist ideas about structural purity".

Last month it was announced that Ouroussoff, the NYT's architecture critic for seven years, is leaving. His replacement will be NYT arts columnist Michael Kimmelman.

In September 2010 architect Ole Scheeren, who led the CCTV design team while at OMA, left to start his own practice called Büro Ole Scheeren.
