In conversation with Rem Koolhaas
In Venice, Michael Schindhelm discussed with Rem Koolhaas, the curator of the 14th Biennale of Architecture. Koolhaas explains his curatorial intentions, oscillating between retrospective and an outlook on the future. In the Arsenale, where the show Monditalia is on display, special attention is paid to the host country Italia. Meanwhile, following the motto Absorbing Modernity 1914-2014, the national pavilions show “architecture instead of architects”, while the main exhibition focuses on the grammar of building, the Elements of Architecture.
