The fact that Rem Koolhaas couldn’t be physically present at yesterday’s lecture didn’t stop him from giving it. Technology has gone a long way in aiding people with communication. So by the use of modern means, Rem talked extensively about the change in the esthetic core of the village. The countryside is becoming more and more automated whilst the role of the farmer is declining. The way the rural areas are being advertised is also affecting our perception of it. City dwellers begin to feel equally at home in the countryside, as well as in the city.
