I’ve been kind of ‘on record’ as being deeply unhappy, and deeply uncomfortable about that kind of situation [‘starchitect’ title]… because I think every name describes a content, and the content of ‘star architect’ – compared to the content of ‘architect’ – is limited. Nobody thinks the star has good intentions. A star walks over you – a star is indifferent to what people think. My hope is that also, through the current complexity, that the title will exit discreetly and disappear.

~ Rem Koolhaas in CNN interview, which can be seen here.
