transformation and also curving away from deconstructivism. But it should not move into somethingthat fixated to the cosmetic as Jeffrey Kipnis argue to what Herzog de Meuron typified on their workthat often high consideration on details, eye catching materials and stunning facades compare toattention of radical experiments to what is needed to be observed in terms of context and content.Nevertheless, Kipnis said that it was a brilliant thought leading to a voluptuous observation of theircosmetic techniques.If we take a look to what Rem Koolhaas is trying to do in this decade, is bringing architecture not mereas a representational object or form of symbolism, with his own distinct way which Robert Somol andSarah Whiting find that architecture should be an adaptive synthesis of many contingencies, rather thanisolating a singular autonomy, and in a way it must be a force and effect which apodictically taking intoconsideration all aspects of material, program, atmosphere, form, technologies, economies, and etc.Quote from Delirious New York
"a social condenser generating and intensifying desirable forms of human intercourse."
(Koolhaas, 1978), here he found that the programmes inside The DowntownAthletic Club is the desire of what people “needs”, It is a skyscraper, in New York.
