Thanks gomestar - very interesting opinions and quite opposite to what my architect friends think of him. I know a few architects and used to live with one (granted, they're European), and all have a trememdous amount of respect for OMA/Koolhaas and what he brought to the archi world.
I think it might be a generational thing as many of her friends seem to share her opinion. One of her friends did his internship at OMA in Rotterdam but he didn't return (i dont know why).
I asked her to name off a few architects she really respects and she game back with Renzo Piano, Herzog (for very unique designs), Alvar Aalto, Gaudi, Terraghi.
And this building here which she claims is one of the most stunning buildings she has ever been in (and it's the crematorium she mentioned earlier):
