Abstract

Built by OMA near Paris in the late 1980s, the villa Dall’Ava remains an enigma.

Is this intriguing domestic object a postmodernist folly? A cultivated parody? A surrealistic joke?

A critical paranoid investigation of the paradoxes of this uncanny building, reveals the many facets of the theoretical project for architecture embedded here by Rem Koolhaas.
