1 la Biennale di Venezia 14 th International Architecture Exhibition Statement by Paolo Baratta President of la Biennale di Venezia Ladies and Gentleman, I m delighted to present also this year the Venice Architecture Biennale in this Italian Cultural Institute. The event is made possible thanks to the warm hospitality of its Director, Mrs Caterina Cardona, to whom I'm very grateful. With Rem Koolhaas our aim is to create an exceptional, research-centered Architecture Biennale. It will be significantly innovative as Rem has conceived a project that involves the entire Biennale, which fully exploits its potential. Let s start with the pavilions, which are independently managed by the participating countries and whose presence is a unique prerogative of la Biennale di Venezia. In this edition, commissioners and curators were not simply informed of the theme assigned by our Director to his own Exhibition. Instead, a specific topic (Absorbing Modernity ) has been offered to all of them. This suggestion has been largely accepted and therefore the national pavilions are contributing and preparing a large part of the overall investigation, which together is entitled Fundamentals. And this is certainly one of the reasons why the number of participating countries has risen from 55 to 65, of which 11 are taking part for the first time: Azerbaijan, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, United Arab Emirates, Indonesia, Ivory Cost, Kenya, Morocco, Mozambique, New Zealand and Turkey. But this is by no means all. I must remind everyone that la Biennale embraces various disciplines beyond Art and Architecture (Dance, Music, Theatre, and Cinema), and here too Koolhaas didn t miss the opportunity. The Monditalia section of the Exhibition will also act as a container for activities pertaining to these different arts ensuring that they are not happenings alongside or overlapping with the Architecture Exhibition. Dance, Music, Theatre, and Cinema will be incorporated to epitomise the articulated and living contexts in which architecture may be conceived or imagined. The Directors of the Biennale Danza, Musica, Teatro, and Cinema have taken this input on board and will be developing much of their programme (Festival and College) within the Corderie in the Arsenale and within the Architecture Exhibition itself, with programmes to be announced in an upcoming conference. And there s more. This time the role taken on by our director differs greatly from arranging a stage for the works and ideas of the invited architects. The Exhibition is the result of research carried out under the guidance of the director and exhibited in alignment with his project. Some of the early Architecture editions offer precedents, but nothing on this level. The spirit of research has always been our concern. For this edition, however, la Biennale turns itself into research. And we are convinced of the importance represented by this development and the extraordinary opportunity offered by Rem.

2 But why do we feel the need for in-depth research instead of aiming towards a merely updated representation of what architecture is? Why is the need for investigation insistent in the world of art and now in the world of architecture? Last year, the Art Biennale was founded, to a more accentuated extent than usual, on its director s commitment to research. We said that la Biennale needed to confront and dialogue with some of the developments which are affecting contemporary art. Contemporary art has become more and more customary or habitual, heavily market-dictated and drowned in that unstoppable, all-pervasive spreading of images all around us, running the risk of drifting towards a conformist dilution and trivialization of the relationship between the viewer and the works, which might end up as indifference. In this context the 55 th International Art Exhibition curated by Massimiliano Gioni somehow strongly reiterated and documented the human need to create purpose-free images, backed by the urgency of personal obsessions and utopias. And Architecture? For years we have criticised the divide that is growing between architecture and civil society, made up of individuals and institutions that should express a demand for architecture. We have observed the dualism between excess and indifference and, here also, we have seen a risk of conformism, fostered by economy and technology. For architecture and for art, development should be guided by a mindful ability and a wilful capacity to express needs and desires. And here Koolhaas goes straight to the point. With great courage and ambition, after having traced the history of modernity over the past 100 years to the present, he identifies and presents the elements that should act as references for a regenerated relationship between us and architecture (Elements of Architecture). The specific goal for the Monditalia section of the Exhibition, at the Corderie, is to gather and illustrate significant dimensions of Italy by means of ad-hoc studies. The result aims to remind us of the complex Italian reality, which is paradigm of not just local but global complexities that must not be denied or concealed. By revealing these realities we are able to access references that are also able to inspire architecture. Debates, meetings and talks will enrich the Biennale Architettura for the whole duration of the Exhibition that, given the intensity and the scope of the project, we have extended to six months. As at past exhibitions, the Biennale Sessions project will involve universities and, more specifically, faculties of architecture around the world, and a broad educational system will primarily target the new generations. I would like to thank our partner Rolex, and all the other companies for their generous assistance and contribution. I would also like to thank all the international public institutions and many donors who have been so important in the creation of the 14 th International Architecture Exhibition. I warmly thank Rem along with all his collaborators, and the huge number of researchers working behind the scenes for this Exhibition. My thanks also go to the directors of the Biennale Danza, Musica, Teatro and Cinema: Virgilio Sieni, Ivan Fedele, Àlex Rigola, Alberto Barbera. Finally I would like to thank la Biennale organisation for its wonderful work in setting up this Exhibition.

3 la Biennale di Venezia 14 th International Architecture Exhibition Fundamentals Venice (Giardini and Arsenale), June 7 November 23, 2014 Preview: June 5 6 Venice, March 10, 2014 The 14 th International Architecture Exhibition, entitled Fundamentals, directed by Rem Koolhaas and organized by la Biennale di Venezia, chaired by Paolo Baratta, will be open to the public from June 7 through November 23, 2014, in the Giardini and the Arsenale. The preview will be held on June 5 and 6 and the award ceremony and inauguration will take place on June National Participations will be exhibiting in the historic pavilions of the Giardini, the Arsenale, and the city of Venice. Among these, 11 countries will be participating in the Exhibition for the first time: Azerbaijan, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, United Arab Emirates, Indonesia, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Morocco, Mozambique, New Zealand, and Turkey. This year the Italian Pavilion is based in the Arsenale and organized by the Italian Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities with PaBAAC (general direction for landscape, fine arts, architecture and contemporary art). It is curated by Cino Zucchi. The official Collateral Events of the 14 th International Architecture Exhibition will be presented by international institutions that will hold their exhibitions and initiatives in various locations in the city. With Rem Koolhaas, our aim is to create an exceptional, research-centred Architecture Biennale, Paolo Baratta states. It will be significantly innovative as Rem has conceived a project that involves the entire Biennale, which fully exploits its potential. "Let s start with the pavilions, which are independently managed by the participating countries and whose presence is a unique prerogative of la Biennale di Venezia. In this edition, commissioners and curators were not simply informed of the theme assigned by our Director to his own Exhibition. Instead, a specific topic (Absorbing Modernity ) has been offered to all of them. Baratta continues: la Biennale embraces various disciplines beyond Art and Architecture (Dance, Music, Theatre, and Cinema), and here too Koolhaas didn t miss the opportunity. In the Monditalia section of the Exhibition, Dance, Music, Theatre and Cinema will be incorporated to epitomise the articulated and living contexts in which architecture may be conceived or imagined.

4 The specific goal for the Monditalia section of the Exhibition, at the Corderie, is to gather and illustrate significant dimensions of Italy by means of ad-hoc studies. The result aims to remind us of the complex Italian reality, which is paradigm of not just local but global complexities that must not be denied or concealed. By revealing these realities we are able to access references that are also able to inspire new architecture. Rem Koolhaas states: Fundamentals consists of three interlocking exhibitions Absorbing Modernity , Elements of Architecture and Monditalia that together illuminate the past, present and future of our discipline. After several architecture Biennales dedicated to the celebration of the contemporary, Fundamentals will look at histories, attempt to reconstruct how architecture finds itself in its current situation, and speculate on its future. Absorbing Modernity: is an invitation to the national pavilions to show, each in their own way, the process of the erasure of national characteristics in architecture in favor of the almost universal adoption of a single modern language and a single repertoire of typologies a more complex process than we typically recognize, involving significant encounters between cultures, technical inventions, and hidden ways of remaining national. Elements of Architecture, in the Central Pavilion, will pay close attention to the fundamentals of our buildings, used by any architect, anywhere, anytime: the floor, the wall, the ceiling, the roof, the door, the window, the façade, the balcony, the corridor, the fireplace, the toilet, the stair, the escalator, the elevator, the ramp Monditalia dedicates the Arsenale to a single theme Italy with exhibitions, events, and theatrical productions engaging architecture, politics, economics, religion, technology, industry. The other festivals of la Biennale di Venezia film, dance, theatre, and music will be mobilized to contribute to a comprehensive portrait of the host country. (See Rem Koolhaas's statement attached.) Biennale Sessions program for universities The Biennale Sessions project is taking place for the fifth consecutive year. After the extraordinary success of the previous editions, la Biennale offers for the 14 th edition the Biennale Sessions program directed at universities, fine arts academies, and research and educational institutions in the fields of architecture, visual arts and other associations. The goal of the Biennale Sessions is to encourage visits to the exhibition by groups of at least 50 students and teachers who will be assisted in the organization of their journey and stay. They will be able to organize seminars in a space made available to them free of charge by la Biennale. As of today, 47 international universities have already signed up for the Biennale Sessions. Meetings on Architecture This year the Meetings on Architecture, organized by la Biennale, will be enriched by the Weekend Specials program, conceived as an essential part of the section Monditalia: conferences, workshops, performances and debates will run during the six months of the Exhibition. The 3 rd International Conference Archives and Exhibitions will take place in October. Educational activities are addressed to individuals and groups of students from schools of all grades, universities and architecture schools, professionals, companies, experts, fans and families. The activities, conducted by selected staff trained by la Biennale di Venezia, are aimed at actively involving participants in both guided itineraries and workshop activities.

5 Catalogue, short guide, Elements of Architecture volume The official catalogue of the 14 th Exhibition (350 pages) is made up of the three sections of the 14 th Exhibition: Absorbing modernity , Elements of Architecture, Monditalia, and the Collateral Events. The catalogue is published in Italian and English. The short guide, in Italian and English, is an essential tool for visiting the Exhibition: it contains the short texts of the catalogue with useful information and maps. Catalogue and Guide are published by Marsilio Editori. Besides the catalogue there will be a volume of research: Elements of Architecture, dedicated to the fundamental elements of architecture and done in collaboration with a research team under Koolhaas s direction from the Harvard Graduate School of Design. The three volumes and the graphic identity of Fundamentals are designed by Irma Boom. The inauguration and awards ceremony of the 14 th International Architecture Exhibition will be held on Saturday, June 7, at the Giardini, with the conferral of the official awards assigned by the international Jury. The 14 th International Architecture Exhibition is carried out also thanks to Rolex, Partner of the event, Japan Tobacco International, Foscarini, and Vela-Hello Venezia. Thanks also to Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP. Our thanks to the Ministry of Culture, which at a challenging time for public finances is maintaining its decisive support, the local institutions that support la Biennale, the City of Venice and the Regione del Veneto. We extend our thanks to the authorities that are concerned with the buildings in which the Exhibition is held, and the Venice Soprintendenze. Thanks to Rem Koolhaas's team and the Biennale's staff for making the Exhibition possible. Thanks to the Directors of the Biennale Danza, Musica, Teatro and Cinema: Virgilio Sieni, Ivan Fedele, Àlex Rigola, Alberto Barbera. We would also like to thank our many donors, who have been essential in the realization of the 14 th Exhibition.

6 Fundamentals Rem Koolhaas, curator of the 14 th International Architecture Exhibition Architecture, not architects... An umbrella theme for the national pavilions: from national to universal... The Arsenale as performance space... Fundamentals consists of three interlocking exhibitions Absorbing Modernity , Elements of Architecture, Monditalia that together illuminate the past, present and future of our discipline. After several architecture Biennales dedicated to the celebration of the contemporary, Fundamentals will look at histories, try to reconstruct how architecture finds itself in its current situation, and speculate on its future. Central Pavilion Elements of Architecture will pay close attention to the fundamentals of our buildings, used by any architect, anywhere, anytime: the floor, the wall, the ceiling, the roof, the door, the window, the façade, the balcony, the corridor, the fireplace, the toilet, the stair, the escalator, the elevator, the ramp Under near-microscopic attention, the apparently mundane elements of architecture are revealed as unstable compounds of cultural preferences, forgotten symbolism, technological advances, mutations spawned by intensifying global exchange, climatic considerations, fluctuating thresholds of comfort, mythical desires, political calculations, regulatory requirements, neoliberal economics, new digital regimes, and, somewhere in the mix, the ideas of the architect. Traditional architectural elements the ceiling and the window, but also even the façade now belong to advanced technological domains, yet the fundamental elements of architecture endure, albeit in sometimes radically different forms. By looking at the evolution of architectural elements shared by all cultures, the exhibition will expand the architectural discourse beyond its normal parameters, and include a broad public in an exploration of the familiar, the erased, and the visionary dimensions of architecture. National Pavilions Absorbing Modernity: In 1914, it made sense to talk about a Chinese architecture, a Swiss architecture, an Indian architecture One hundred years later, under the influence of wars, diverse political regimes, different states of development, national and international architectural movements, individual talents, friendships, random personal trajectories, and technological developments, architectures that were once specific and local have become seemingly interchangeable and global. Has national identity been sacrificed to modernity?

7 Participating countries will engage a single theme Absorbing Modernity: and will show, each in their own way, the process of the erasure of national characteristics in favor of the almost universal adoption of a single modern language and a single repertoire of typologies. But the transition to what seems like a universal architectural language is a more complex process than we typically recognize, involving significant encounters between cultures, technical inventions, and hidden ways of remaining national. In a time of ubiquitous google research and the flattening of cultural memory, it is crucial for the future of architecture to resurrect and expose these narratives. By telling the history of the last 100 years cumulatively, the exhibitions in the National Pavilions will generate a global overview of architecture s evolution into a single, modern aesthetic, and at the same time uncover within globalization the survival of unique national features and mentalities that continue to exist and flourish even as international collaboration and exchange intensify Arsenale Monditalia. The physical presence of the Arsenale is interpreted as an ideal set. Rather than a sequence of individual episodes that typically do not connect to form a single narrative, we propose to dedicate the Arsenale to a single theme Italy and to mobilize other festivals of la Biennale di Venezia Film, Dance, Music, Theatre to collectively represent a comprehensive portrait of the host country. In a moment of crucial political transformation, we decided to look at Italy as a fundamental country, completely unique but showing certain features particularly the coexistence of immense riches, creativity, competences, and potential combined with political turbulence that also make it a prototype of the current moment. Throughout the Corderie, exhibitions and a series of theatrical productions and events will unfold, engaging architecture, politics, economics, religion, technology, industry Each one could leave a physical trace in the form of sets, objects, written material, projections, or the extended presence of people. The Corderie would be imagined as a multidisciplinary work in progress, constantly evolving and on permanent display, with varying degrees of activity and varying scales of productions taking place in its different sections. Together, these episodes represent a scan of the entire country, represented by the Tabula Peutingeriana, a 5th Century map of Italy as the core of the Roman empire, that is still entirely relevant...

9 Rem Koolhaas (Rotterdam 1944) Biographical notes Rem Koolhaas founded OMA in 1975 together with Elia and Zoe Zenghelis and Madelon Vriesendorp. Koolhaas worked as a journalist and screenwriter before beginning architecture, and writing has remained central to his architectural practice. At the same time as designing buildings around the world with OMA, Koolhaas works in non-architectural disciplines including politics, publishing, media, fashion, and sociology through his think tank and research unit, AMO. After studying at the Architectural Association in London, and at Cornell and the Institute for Architecture and Urban Studies in the US, Koolhaas wrote Delirious New York (1978) and simultaneously began producing projects and proposals with OMA. In 1995, S,M,L,XL summarized the work of OMA in a 1,200-page book that redefined architectural publishing. As director of the Project on the City research program at Harvard University, Koolhaas produced the books The Harvard Guide to Shopping (2001), an analysis of the role of retail and consumption in society and architecture, and Great Leap Forward (2002), a study of China s Pearl River Delta; he also produced studies on Lagos, Roman architecture and communism. Recently completed OMA buildings include De Rotterdam, three interconnected towers on the river Maas; Shenzhen Stock Exchange; the G-Star headquarters in Amsterdam; the new headquarters for China Central Television (CCTV) a tower reinvented as a loop in Beijing; a new headquarters for Rothschild Bank in London; and Milstein Hall, an elevated slab that extends Cornell s college of Architecture, Art and Planning. OMA-designed buildings currently under construction include the Taipei Performing Arts Centre; three buildings in Doha, Qatar; the Bibliothèque Multimédia à Vocation Régionale, a four-story public library in Caen; and Bryghusprojektet in Copenhagen, a mixed-use project accommodating the new headquarters for the Danish Architecture Centre. In 1998, Koolhaas established AMO as a platform for using architectural thinking in non-architectural realms. Recent AMO projects include research into the countryside (globally) and the Russian hinterland; the design of catwalk shows for Prada and Miu Miu; Cronocaos, an exhibition on preservation, at the 2010 Venice Biennale; participation in the EU Reflection Group think tank, with the task of making proposals for Europe in 2020; Roadmap 2050, a masterplan for a Europe-wide renewable energy grid; and the development of an educational program for Strelka, a new architecture school in Moscow. AMO has also guest edited an issue of Wired magazine as well as consulting on the future of Conde Nast magazines; proposed a barcode EU flag; and developed a curatorial masterplan for the Hermitage museum, St. Petersburg.
