Rem Koolhaas, one of today's most celebrated architects, has lived a significant year. With the closing of his much-talked about Venice Biennale just days away, the Dutchman also turns 70 years old this coming Monday.

Koolhaas' approach to architecture and architectural thinking holds tremendous importance and weight - so much so that Bjarke Ingels, one of his many protegés, has called him "the Le Corbusier of our time."

In recognition of his contribution to the world of architecture (and on the occasion of his birthday) we're asking you, our readers, to post video and/or visual tributes to Rem to your social media accounts using the hasthtag #Rem70. Has Koolhaas influenced the work of your studio or office? Show your support or appreciation in a short video clip! Would you like to share a portrait or illustration of Rem or his projects? Do you have an anecdote or story? Be creative! We'll be publishing our favorites on his birthday, so start tagging (#Rem70) and stay tuned.
