    Curator Rem Koolhaas associated architecture with the century of modernity lasting from 1914 to 2014 overburdened with devastating invasions and terrible sufferings. According to him, the „losers” of this era – that is civilisation as such – managed to survive these traumatic events via architecture instead of construction. The latter is only routine, whilst architecture is hope itself in Koolhaas’s interpretation. And he also adds: maybe. A remarkably well-organised exhibition made complete with a vast library, the hundred interpretations of space by the thesaurus of the Arsenale/Monditalia dance festival and film art, the central pavilion housing the mega-exhibition titled The Elements of Architecture offering in-depth scientific spectacle all have the capacity to possibly inspire us. Focusing on the future, Koolhaas asks: „How did we get here, what can we do, and where should we go?”
