Rem’s Fundamental Thinking
2014 Venice Biennale / Architecture / Process Posted by Andrew Latreille / 0 comments
Rem Koolhaas…..how does a building go together?
‘Well, it has numerous parts to it’….and these parts have changed over time.
Bringing the methods of design and construction down to its simplest forms in terms that people with no Architectural or building knowledge can understand.
It is a massive exhibition, exhaustive and details, but simple.
My favourite rooms, ‘Door’ and ‘Ceiling’ and ‘Window’. The chronology of how each of these elements has been used in building and has evolved…
A door has always been a threshold and a barrier, a means of security. Once it was a portcullis, then an opening in a forts walls, now this threshold is a metal detector at the airport.
