Starchitect Rem Koolhaas will curate the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennnale. Koolhaas heads the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA), known for iconic structures such as the CCTV building in Beijing. He received the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement at the Biennale in 2010 and was awarded the Pritzker Prize in 2000.
In a statement issued by the Biennale, Koolhaas said he would like “to take a fresh look at the fundamental elements of architecture — used by any architect, anywhere, any time — to see if we can discover anything new about architecture.”
