The &ldquo;short-term&rdquo; magazine isn't solely about Koolhaas, but began publishing at the start of his Venice Biennale of Architecture in June, placing its feet firmly alongside other satellite exhibitions taking place during the Biennale. But <em>REM</em> isn&rsquo;t here to analyze &mdash; it&rsquo;s here to pit architects against one another in Koolhaas&rsquo; boxing ring.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/103324398/op-ed-from-ex-cite-to-in-cite-reflecting-on-rem-s-biennale Op-Ed: From (EX)CITE to (IN)CITE, reflecting on Rem's Biennale Esther Sperber 2014-07-07T12:43:00-04:00 >2014-07-11T10:01:28-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/nx/nxleo239b3xicwkv.jpg" width="514" height="303" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p><strong>EXCITE</strong></p><p>Rem Koolhaas, chief curator of the 2014 Venice Biennale, managed to excite us, again forcing us to rethink the <a href="http://www.labiennale.org/en/architecture/exhibition/elements/" target="_blank">Elements</a> and <a href="http://www.labiennale.org/en/architecture/exhibition/" target="_blank">Fundamentals</a> of architecture. For me, this is the first time I felt a real desire to visit the show, which I have always imagined to be more like an amusement park for new design.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/101728824/rem-s-venice-biennale-is-like-being-immersed-in-a-stormy-s-m-l-xl-with-a-glass-of-wine-and-hundreds-of-other-people Rem's Venice Biennale is "like being immersed in a stormy S,M,L,XL, with a glass of wine, and hundreds of other people" Terri Peters 2014-06-16T10:46:00-04:00 >2014-06-23T19:43:39-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/ru/ru6bcb8mio6w1kv6.jpg" width="514" height="343" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Is Modernism &ldquo;history&rdquo;? How do Modern concepts, especially regarding representation, nature, technology and housing, relate to the current state of architecture? These were some overarching questions embedded in the 14th Venice Biennale of Architecture, curated by Rem Koolhaas. The show opened June 7th under the &ldquo;Fundamentals&rdquo; theme, and it is worth visiting for the important questions it raises about the current state of architecture and building.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/57481963/instigating-change-with-common-ground Instigating Change with Common Ground John Southern 2012-09-18T10:16:00-04:00 >2012-09-30T19:17:46-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/sb/sbtpvtmbt204176u.jpg" width="514" height="759" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> In the age where cultural production has usurped industrial production as the driver for Western economies, the Venice Architecture Biennale represents a special kind of affair.&nbsp; This three month-long bonanza of architecture and urban design represents a collection of diverse principles produced under a unified curatorial umbrella.&nbsp; Despite the trash-talk that has proliferated in certain circles since the opening of the event in late August, this year&rsquo;s Biennale doesn&rsquo;t have much to be cynical, negative, or nasty about.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/79984/venice-biennale-review Venice Biennale Review Martina Dolejsova 2008-09-16T17:58:00-04:00 >2012-12-10T19:09:03-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/m5/m5tjate82smx5g7y.jpg" width="514" height="303" border="0" title="" alt="" /><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd"> <html><head><meta></head></html>
