    About "Elements of Architecture"

    In his book "Elements of Architecture", Rem Koolhaas examines the various components of architecture, from windows and façades to escalators and elevators. He shows how these elements have evolved and developed throughout history, influenced by technological advances, political changes, economic conditions and other factors. The book is based on an exhibition by Koolhaas during the 2014 Architecture Biennale in Venice and offers in-depth fundamental research.

    The monograph, designed by Irma Boom, impresses not only with its content, but also with its new design, which visually and physically reflects the diversity of the architectural theme. It also contains personal notes by Koolhaas and Boom as well as interviews with experts from the industry. The volume is printed on special paper and features a custom cover with a unique spine.

    Rem Koolhaas is a renowned architect and co-founder of the Office for Metropolitan Architecture, while Irma Boom is a respected book designer. Photographer Wolfgang Tillmans has also made an important contribution to the book and is known for his versatile work, ranging from subcultural depictions to abstract images.
