This book is a survey of Koolhaas' architecture on various scales (hence the title). Each subsection takes you through the drafts and designs for one project. Interestingly, not all of the projects included were actually built, so you get to the end of the section and either flip the page to see a photograph of the finished building or you read about how they didn't get the bid or the project later stalled. A fun look at the work of a celebrated architect.
