A global overview on architecture seen through the history of the
last 100 years. The emphasis of the 2014 Biennale is on
architectural history. Each country will be asked to narrate its
own one over the last one hundred years in relation to the idea of
modernity, whether it was accepted or rejected. One hundred years
ago it was possible to talk about national architecture but this is
no longer the case. Why have we reached a situation in which we all
build the same things? In 1914 we could meaningfully speak about
Chinese, Swiss, or Indian architecture. One hundred years later,
under the pressure of many factors-war, various political regimes,
multiple conditions of development, architectural movements,
individual talents, chance, personal paths and technological
developments-architecture that was once specific and local has
become interchangeable and global. National identity seems to have
been sacrificed on the altar of modernity. This is the real issue
that everyone invited to the Biennale is called on to address.
