Engineer guy video: Anodizing

It's rewarding to see that one can learn so many things on the Internet in the blink of an eye. I remembered when they spoke about anodizing in a boring Materials Class in Madrid Architecture School, with just an ugly drawing projected in a bad quality transparency projector. Thankfully things have changed so much since 2003.  Let us be thankful we have Internet and great people creating interesting content.

REM KOOLHAAS: A KIND OF ARCHITECT directed by Markus Heidingsfelder

I opened an account on Arquia Caja de Arquitectos "Architects bank" and they gave me as a present this film about Rem Koolhaas on DVD. As Rem himself describes: "It's the only film about me that I have liked." The edition I have is this one by Fundación Caja de Arquitectos. It's available on other editions in Amazon all over the world.
