The 14th International Architecture Exhibition, organized by La Biennale di Venezia and directed by Rem Koolhaas, has the title Fundamentals. It consists of three main components: the national pavilions; the collaborative exhibition Monditalia; and in the Central Pavilion, Elements of Architecture. Elements of Architecture deals with the fundamentals of architecture, the elements that every architect uses: 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. The exhibition is a selection of the most interesting moments from a new book, Elements of Architecture, that reconstructs the global history of each element. This video provides you with an exhibition walk-through on the occasion of the press preview.
