On the occasion of the 2014 Venice Biennale Fundamentals, we are looking back at the contributions that some of its protagonists have made to the CCA. The work featured here by these scholars and experts often provides a foundation for the projects now on display at the Biennale.
Major international architects Rem Koolhaas and Peter Eisenman address topics they consider to be of vital importance and urgency in contemporary architectural practice. Their individual presentations are followed by a joint conversation with CCA Founding Director and Chair of the Board of Trustees Phyllis Lambert.
The Urgency series reflects the CCA’s ongoing exploration of critical issues facing architecture and contemporary society. The free public program is presented in conjunction with the CCA Soirée Phyllisienne fundraising gala on 7 June 2007, and forms part of a series of special events honouring Phyllis Lambert’s 80th birthday throughout the year.
Presented in English.
