EVERLITE CONCEPT donor for the 14th Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia

The 14th 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..

Requested by Rem Koolhaas, it is with great honor that EVERLITE CONCEPT supports this international event dedicated to Architecture, a discipline to which it has been associated for the past 25 years..

elements of architctectureIn this 2014 edition, Rem Koolhaas chose to highlight architecture and its fundamentals..

Fundamentals consists of three interlocking exhibitions – Absorbing Modernity 1914-2014, Elements of Architecture, Monditalia – that together illuminate the past, present and future of architecture.  After several architecture Biennales dedicated to the celebration of the contemporary, Fundamentals will look at histories, and try to reconstruct how architecture finds itself in its current situation, and speculate on its future.

Absorbing Modernity: 1914-2014 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.

By contributing towards the Facade Room of the Elements of architecture exhibition, EVERLITE CONCEPT is proud to promote architecture, an art to which it works alongside daily, by offering innovative solutions for the entire building envelope.


Dans cette édition 2014, Rem Koolhaas bouscule les habitudes en choisissant de mettre à l’honneur l’architecture et ses fondamentaux plutôt que les architectes. 

Fundamentals entremêle 3 expositions,  Absorbing Modernity 1914-2014, Elements of Architecture et Monditalia qui explorent et mettent en lumière le passé, le présent et le futur de l’architecture.

Absorbing Modernity : 1914-2014, est le thème que Rem Koolhaas a proposé aux 65 nations participantes à cette Biennale. Il les invite à présenter leurs visions sur l’effacement progressif de l’architecture nationale au profit d’une approche plus universelle tout en parvenant à maintenir de façon subtile cette entité qui leur est propre. Une rétrospective sur l’évolution de l’architecture dans le monde. 

Elements of Architecture, le Pavillon Central explorera avec attention les fondamentaux de nos bâtiments qui sont utilisés par tous les architectes, partout et depuis toujours : le sol, le mur, le plafond, le toit, la porte, la fenêtre, la façade, le balcon, le couloir, la cheminée, les toilettes, l’escalier, l’ascenseur, la rampe… Une plongée dans une étude sur l’évolution des éléments d’architecture à travers le temps.

Monditalia, l’Arsenal sera dédié au pays d’accueil de cette Biennale. Architecture, politique, économie, religion, technologie,  industrie et culture retraceront un portrait exhaustif de l’Italie.
