14th International Architecture Exhibition

Three interlocking exhibitions

Fundamentals consisted of three interlocking exhibitions: Absorbing Modernity 1914-2014, an invitation to the national pavilions to show the process of the erasure of national characteristics. Elements of Architecture, in the Central Pavilion, focused on the fundamentals of our buildings used by any architect, anywhere, anytime. Monditalia dedicated the Arsenale to a single theme – Italy – with exhibitions, events, and theatrical productions.

Biennale Sessions / Weekend Specials

The Biennale Sessions project took place for the fifth consecutive year; the goal of the project is to encourage visits to the exhibition by groups of at least 50 students and teachers who are assisted in the organization of their journey and stay. In 2014 the meetings for the public are enriched by the Weekend Specials program, conceived as an essential part of the Monditalia section: conferences, workshops, performances and debate.
